Adriana Spence Adriana nurtures GAP’s new programme ideas, helping them blossom by crafting messaging grounded in research to ensure they resonate with diverse audiences, and by exploring collaboration and funding opportunities for them. Her journey at GAP, initially helping schools, hospitals and businesses navigate the murky waters of change for energy, water, and travel behaviours as a Programme Officer, then as Creative Development Officer, and now as Manager, shows how her knowledge of behaviour change coupled with her big picture thinking have become invaluable to the team. An English teacher in France and Vietnam for a few years, Adriana jumped into the non-profit community for the Center for Community Initiatives and Environment in Vietnam and more recently for Hackney food waste entrepreneurs Rejuce, where a burning commitment to conscious consumption took hold. She holds a degree from University of Exeter in International Relations and French and a Master’s degree with distinction in Environment, Politics and Globalisation from King’s College London. GAP’s mission takes a look at the value experiences, rather than things, can bring. What does Adriana like doing in her free time? Adriana loves kicking a ball around on a sunlit day with friends. What inspires Adriana about GAP’s mission? The many ways in which we are bringing excessive material consumption into the political debate and decision-making.
