Sustainability communications and branding.

 

I began my career shaping the communications for what’s now one of the world’s most respected solar energy companies, Solarcentury, and in 2006 co-launched SolarAid, the non-profit leading electricity access in the developing world. On the communications team of green consumer finance innovators Abundance Investment, I have also been a financial reform commentator with Move Your Money and a communications lead at international environmental non-profit CDP.

I have appeared on Sky News, Channel 4 News, BBC Earth in the Independent, The Guardian and The Times and have guest lectured in art, design and environmental communications at The University of Sheffield and The University of Thessaloniki in Greece. I have a BSc. in Geographical Sciences from the University of Bristol and have trained in PR, journalism, textile design and documentary production.

I also have a passion for art and design. In 2014, with the support of Ashden and Abundance, I founded ‘Human Nature’ the international environmental art organisation, increasing the visibility of contemporary artists exploring our connection to nature across the world with exhibitions during London Design Week and street art tours including The Art of Beeing USA in 2016. Joining international green brands, non-profits, philanthropists and artists, Human Nature has been featured by The Guardian, BBC News, Vice, Fox News, National Geographic, The Art Conference and Wellcome Trust.

British artist Louis Masai travels across the USA in Autumn 2016 to begin his attempt to tackle species extinction through art. It is one of the most ambitious mural projects of its kind to date, with 20 murals coming to 12 cities in just two months, reflecting the fast escalating extinction crisis. In the first in a series of short films documenting his tour 'The Art of Beeing', film crew Tee Byford and Emil Walker join Masai in New York to unearth the truth about man's relationship with nature in the US, what's holding society back from acting for nature and if, indeed, it's possible to stop the extinction crisis. But, the big question is: can they really discover the true 'Art of Beeing'?

Produced by Louis Masai and Human Nature, the environmental art platform, 'The Art of Beeing' is being supported by organisations working for people and planet including Defenders of Wildlife; Ecoalf, the recycling fashion brand, and Synchronicity Earth. ‘The Art of Beeing’: tackling the extinction crisis one wall at a time - October to December 2016. Full film series on Human Nature.

Our cities are changing. More than ever, cities around the world are taking action to build sustainable economies. With over 1,000 projects planned worth US $52 billion, a tipping point on environmental action is within reach. But to get there, we need to move even faster.
