Biographical Information

"Peter believes strongly that people should be helped to re-connect with the places where they live and work. He originally became involved with The Conservation Volunteers through the Advisory Board of the People and Places Programme. He is a keen advocate of sustainable communities and developed his thinking in this area towards the end of a long career spanning teaching, youth work, social work, and community development. He worked for local authorities and national NGOs including the Community Development Foundation and ENCAMS where he was Director of Policy. Most of his time was spent trying to build bridges between organisations specialising in either 'people' or 'environment' and he has sat on several boards of local and national organisations. His last post before becoming a consultant with LINK4Sustainability was in the Local Sustainability Team at the Improvement and Development Agency (IDeA)."[1]
