Hi, my name is: Adam Barnett

I am the: Policy Officer for the UK team

I am from: Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, but I am currently based on London

My goal is: To help close the gap between ‘environmental issues’ and other equally important issues that are currently considered separate, to help create a more diverse, united and inclusive movement. Issues such as gender, race, migration and colonialism are vital to achieving long-term impactful solutions.

Outside of UKYCC: I’m studying for my MSc in Environmental Policy & Regulation at LSE, as well as working for Hackney Council on various recycling and sustainability projects. I also really like playing Badminton, watching films and going to gigs!

You can reach me via: Email at adam.barnett@ukycc.org, or @admpbntt on Twitter. Feel free to say hi!
