I’m Emily, a low carbon policy specialist living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. Together with the colleagues that constitute my community of practice, I’m grappling with the question of what a low carbon and just society and economy is, and how Cape Town, South Africa, the developing world and the world at large can manifest this.

These pages constitute a virtual representation of my current thinking, approach, and professional and academic profile.  I hope that you enjoy dipping into them, and would welcome any thoughts or connections they inspire.

“The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for. The most you can do is live inside that hope, running down its hallways, touching the walls on both sides.”             Barbara Kingsolver
