GCRB appoints new project manager for environment and sustainability

24 August 2021

Sue joins GCRB from Zero Waste Scotland, where she fought climate change by managing the campaign to reduce Scotland’s food waste. Before that, she freelanced as a communications consultant when she spent almost two years working with GCRB.  

With 15 years’ experience in public sector strategy and communications and a commitment to protecting the planet and the people on it, Sue is enthusiastic about her new role. 

Sue said: “It’s great to be back in Further Education and to help motivate and empower learners to make a positive impact on the environment. I know that lots of good work is already happening throughout the regional college system. There's tremendous potential to work together to reduce carbon emissions, manage resources and conserve our natural environment.

"I’m looking forward to contributing to the region’s response to the need for new skills to strengthen our green recovery. I’m also particularly excited about working with students and staff to help grow our collaborative, creative, climate-positive regional culture.” 

 GCRB's Executive Director Martin Boyle said: "Sue joins at an extremely important time for the region and the city. We will be working closely with learners, colleges and partners to develop and implement a regional climate change strategy and deliver our commitment to the Scottish Colleges’ Statement on Climate Change. I'm delighted to welcome Sue to the team."
