Director and Chair
Lucy is one of the driving forces behind the dynamic coalition, Nature4Climate, a strategic mobilisation response to climate change. Through Nature4Climate, she has helped to catalyse action and investment in nature-based solutions to climate change. Governments, companies and civil society organisations around the world are now recognising the urgent need for natural climate solutions, alongside decarbonisation strategies. She has played a central role in bringing together many different sectors of civil society to create an alliance of resolute partners committed to addressing the climate crisis and protecting and restoring our natural ecosystems. With determination, Lucy has guided Nature4Climate’s influencing strategy, building awareness of nature-based solutions, and engaging with governments, the private sector and more recently with youth mobilisation groups. Getting this far has required strategic thinking, perseverance, tact, and skill as well as recognition of the scale of the challenge: much work remains to be done to deliver the broad sweep of multi-sectoral action needed to unlock the full potential of nature as a climate solution. In achieving this, Lucy’s past experience has been invaluable: drawing on her background as an international strategic communications specialist in the energy and natural resources sector, with experience at The Nature Conservancy, BP and at her own consultancy.
