I am part of Extinction Rebellion as I believe that we can work together to rescue and repair the planet from ecological and climate breakdown but that we need to act now.
What’s your favourite blog?
The Building Services Engineers Declare as knowing there are many engineering practices who have declared a climate emergency and are (hopefully) actively working towards a zero-carbon economy is a great incentive to keep going.

That Passivhaus becomes the new minimum requirement and we can achieve net zero carbon in the next decade.
What’s on your bucket list?
Build a house and learn how to ice-skate.
