Ingredients to make change
Session for secondary schools
Evidence, persistence and empathy – three important ingredients for changing people’s minds and behaviour to build a greener, more sustainable future. Anna will share lessons learned from championing sustainability throughout her career, from her work as student Green Champion in her lab while studying for her PhD in Neuroscience at University College London to promoting sustainable innovation as a Director of PPL PWR.
Organisation introduction:PPL PWR is a group of volunteers, including students, engineers, researchers and entrepreneurs, celebrating sustainable innovation, predominantly through interactive workshops at festivals, in schools and in communities. Whether virtually or in person, the collective aims to empower and inspire people to use sustainable technologies and create their own solutions to problems in their communities. At a PPL PWR event, you might find Anna creating light using the heat in her hands or discussing solar energy over a cup of tea made from a dissected solar thermal panel.
Personal biography:Anna is a research scientist just finishing a PhD in Neuroscience at University College London, helping to develop a new therapy to restore muscle function in people who are paralysed.
