Policy and Advocacy Manager
Ruth has a background in research communication and environmental policy projects, working within university, think tank and community settings for the past 15 years. She has a Master’s degree in Environmental Law and Sustainable Development, and is currently a part-time PhD student in environmental sciences at University of East Anglia.
Ruth’s recent experience includes working for the Science Communication Unit (UWE Bristol), leading an environmental evidence-production project for policymaking at the European Commission level; work on how forests can strike a balance for climate mitigation, biodiversity and societal values; and work on the ethical implications of climate adaptation towards net zero in the UK.
Ruth grew up on the edge of the North Pennines National Landscape - within rambling distance of the Solway Coast National Landscape and the Lake District National Park - and currently lives in Bristol, equidistant between the Cotswolds, Mendip Hills and Wye Valley National Landscapes. Ruth’s role is focused on driving forward the National Landscapes Association's policy work. She has a passion for nature protection, and a deep interest in balancing competing demands for land-use.
