Amy became the head of Green Alliance’s new Greener UK
unit in September 2016, focusing on strategy and communications. The unit coordinates partner organisations across the environmental sector, who are working to ensure that the UK’s environmental protections and climate leadership are strengthened during, and after, the process of leaving the European Union.
Amy joined Green Alliance in 2014 to work on our Low Carbon Energy
theme and continues to lead projects in this area. Before starting work at Green Alliance, Amy was a Mellon Fellow at Yale University, graduating with an MA in Global Affairs and a Masters in Environmental Management. Her thesis focused on the politics of oil drilling in Alaska’s Arctic Ocean.
Previously, Amy worked at the Futerra Sustainability Communications, the Royal Geographical Society, and Cambridge University Geography Department. She also volunteered extensively with the UK Youth Climate Coalition, attending the UN climate negotiations as a youth delegate and then leading UKYCC’s coalition-building and political advocacy. She holds a BA in Geography from Cambridge University.
