The Foundation also welcomed Gill Collinson to the board of trustees in November 2021. Gill is Director of Education & Programmes at STEM Learning Ltd., which successfully manages a range of UK programmes supporting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and skills through the National STEM Learning Centre at York and wider network of providers across the UK.
She said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the board of trustees at the Energy Saving Trust Foundation. In the coming decades, climate change will increasingly affect both livelihoods and infrastructure. This will require significant adaption and mitigation at a personal and societal level.
“Joining the Foundation was an opportunity not to miss – the Foundation plays a significant role in improving the understanding of climate change to enable us all, but especially all young people, to be better prepared and more resilient to address the challenges ahead. It’s a privilege to be part of the team!”
