Hi, my name is: Rupert Stuart-Smith

I am from: London

I am the: Local Catalyst Co-ordinator

My goal is: to be part of a network of young people taking charge of our generation’s future by working on successful community-based campaigns.

Outside of UKYCC: I study Geography at university, enjoy cross country running and all forms of environmental campaigning. I was the president of my school environmental society, where I first began fossil fuel divestment campaigning and have volunteered with Friends of the Earth on anti-coal campaigns. I am currently on the committee of the Oxford Climate Society.

You can reach me via: email at rupert@ukycc.org

Thought for the day: Sir David Attenborough on the development of his interest in environmental issues: “It’s not an interest – it’s an obligation!”
