Beginning her studies in Environmental Science, Leigh decided to become more involved in a hands on approach to environmental matters, and spent 10 years travelling Europe getting involved in many small scale projects including habitat management and self-sufficiency.
This led Leigh to realize that in order to address environmental issues, we first need to address people and values. Leigh then gained a first class degree in Anthropology, and then studying for a Masters in Anthropology, Environment and Development at University College London, looking at humans and their relationship to the environment.
Leigh would like to dedicate her time to helping increase awareness that people and nature are not different or separate, but are one and the same. Leigh is a Trustee of Swarm Dynamics nad brings extensive experience as a facilitator of training sessions to international NGOs.
