I'm co-owner / director of an English Language and activity summer school organisation called English Country Schools. We teach English to children aged 7 - 17 but also try to deepen their connection with nature through things like adventure camps, campfires(!) and project-based learning in the outdoors. I love mountain walking, having completed the GR20 Corsica trail, sections of the GR10 and GR11 Pyrenees trail and - last year - the Walkers Haute Route through the Alps from Mont Blanc to The Matterhorn. I'm a new grandparent, which really puts a focus on the future, something I find quite scary under our current climate situation. I'm trying to stay composed about the future, trying to resist dystopian nightmares and searching for a more positive way forward.
