About me

About me

My PhD research, ‘Exploring children’s rights to participation and the geographies of meaning-making in the sixth mass extinction’ explores children’s participation rights in the current climate crisis and sixth mass extinction of species.

Through co-created research activities and material, interspecies experiences, I consider children’s meaning-making in situ and their participation in biodiversity loss responses. This draws together interdisciplinary perspectives on children’s rights, interspecies nature, and educational responses to biodiversity loss that promote eco-social wellbeing.

I am a child rights and participation specialist with Scotland’s Children’s Parliament, where I lead environmental projects, including facilitating child participation in Scottish Government’s Learning for Sustainability Leadership Group (2021-ongoing) and national engagement between children and decision-makers for COP26 and Scotland’s Climate Assembly, the first climate citizens’ assembly in the world to include children (2021).
