Luke leads Global Action Plan’s student behaviour change and since joining in 2010, he has worked closely with key partners such as HSBC, BskyB and Thames Water on Global Action Plan’s flagship schools programmes, including the Sky Rainforest Rescue Schools Challenge and Water Explorer. He is optimistic that if the creativity, enthusiasm and passion of the students he works with is anything to go by, the future is in pretty good hands.

In previous roles, Luke developed climate change risk and sustainability strategies for organisations in a range of sectors, and before that he taught Science and Physical Education in both the UK and Australia. He has a Master’s in Environmental Management from Deakin University, Melbourne and double degree in Education and Human Movement.

Hailing from country Victoria in Australia, Luke grew up with the ‘bush’ on his doorstep. As a result, he has an enduring love of the great outdoors.

Global Action Plan’s mission takes a look at the value experiences, rather than things, can bring. What does Luke like doing in his free time?

Luke likes nothing more than experiencing the wilderness with his kids and picking the odd wild mushroom.
