Comms & Engagement

Chris finds and tell stories of community-led change to inspire UK Transition groups and show their impact, taking care of the Transition Together website, social media and monthly newsletter. She has a background in journalism and campaigning and has worked for Oxfam and Friends of the Earth. She is a founder of Repair Cafe Belfast and Belfast Tool Library, community projects which bring people together to share resources and skills and reduce consumption. She loves to tell stories that balance a glimpse of a better future and some practical steps to get there. Outside of work, you may find her tending her growing children and garden, or on the basketball court.
