JACK BLOOMFIELD, LOCAL CONSTITUENCY SUPPORT OFFICER
Jack is originally from London and is studying for his undergraduate degree in Politics & International Relations. His interest in climate change came from travelling in South America in the last few years, where he saw the impact it had on indigenous communities first-hand. He believes that the biggest challenge with climate change policy is effective communication between stakeholders, from local to international and across political divides.
MARIE FLANAGAN, REMOTE CAMPAIGNER SUPPORT
From Northern Ireland, Marie is currently working towards her PhD in Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield. Her interest in the environment and climate change comes from a volunteering project in Nicaragua, a country already feeling the effects of climate change. Experiencing and seeing the effect on people's lives - and the most vulnerable people at that - brought climate change into focus. She is also very interested in religion and believes that a great way of tackling climate change is to involve religious institutions like the church.
