About GAP Team Staff Alec Hammond Alec spent his childhood peering up at the night sky from Italy, America and the South Coast of England, wondering how it worked. Fast forward a couple of decades, and his curiosity has driven his academic career, leading him to complete a Master’s degree in Physics and Astronomy from which he has developed a profound love of the world – and galaxy - we live in. Alec joined Global Action Plan after a stint in a green space conservation group in Southampton. He now helps Global Action Plan's retail team deliver energy and waste efficiency in stores, and coordinates Global Action Plan UK's activities within the 24-member Global Action Plan International network. He hopes to build the knowledge and skills to design and deliver community-based sustainability initiatives in the future, and leave the world in a better place than he found it. Global Action Plan’s mission takes a look at the value experiences - rather than things - can bring. What does Alec like doing in his free time? Alec is most content when catching up with friends. Good company tends to lead to unexpected adventures. What inspires Alec about Global Action Plan’s mission? That it doesn’t just benefit our global society of today, but entire generations to come.
