Angela is the Project Coordinator of Sustainable Selkirk, a community-led project delivered by Selkirk Regeneration. She has a background in climate change, gaining a MSc in Carbon Management from the University of Edinburgh and BSc in Environmental Studies.
Angela has lived in the Scottish Borders for over 14 years and was brought up in Argyll. Therefore, she feels she has good knowledge of the issues faced by small rural communities, but also the opportunities of bringing people together to take action towards climate change. She strongly supports sustainable rural development that brings multiple benefits to local communities; such as providing innovative solutions to their energy issues, promoting sustainable income streams, job creation, local regeneration, poverty alleviation and enhancing social well-being.
