Design and delivery of sustainability education programmes.
Values led communications and campaigns support.
Having worked in the third sector for most of my career, I have first hand experience of the factors shaping education, communications and campaigning. I can empathise with the challenges associated with funding constraints, bureaucracy, endless reporting and drafty offices.
But I know that NGO's can create great work and I can help deliver it.
Whether your education work is delivered directly to children in the classroom or indirectly via downloadable resources and teacher training I can help.
I can review existing work and make recommendations to improve outcomes, or work with you to develop new interventions from scratch.
I will help you expand the impact and reach of your work and ensure it is innovative, inspiring and engaging.
I can work with you to design robust monitoring and evaluation frameworks to ensure evidence of impact is captured, reported on and learned from.
I will provide training and support in the theory and practice of sustainability education to develop your team's knowledge and skills.
Please note: I maintain high moral standards on advertising to children and child protection. I will ensure that all necessary safeguards are in place and that your work is ethically framed and delivered.
Communications and Campaigns
I advise NGOs on the development and delivery of sustainability messages.
NGOs are becoming increasingly aware of the need to carefully consider the values and frames that are being activated and reinforced through their communications and campaigns.
My approach* is grounded in the recommendations of highly the influential Common Cause movement. I will help you to frame your messages so that you can avoid reinforcing outdated ways of thinking about issues and concepts. I can also help you to discover the benefits of activating intrinsic values such as compassion and empathy in your campaigns to change attitudes and behaviour.
*From 2011 - 2013 I ran the Our Common Place programme at Keep Britain Tidy. Our Common Place was a practical application of the recommendations made by the Common Cause movement. You can download a free toolkit from the Keep Britain Tidy website and visit the Common Cause website to learn more about this approach.
