Gillian Martin Mehers
“Learning practitioner, proselytic blogger, sustainability advocate, and student of productivity” is Gillian’s Twitter profile, which also describes her 17 years of work across the various social platforms she uses to help the sustainability community engage with more considered learning processes.
Since 2006, Gillian has blogged (www.welearnsomething.org) actively about her work in informal and formal learning within different environment and development organizations. From her previous position as Head of Learning at the International Union of Conservation of Nature (the oldest and largest global conservation network) to her current one as founder of the social enterprise Bright Green Learning, she helps NGOs leverage their impact through learning.
Gillian also serves as Co-President of the Balaton Group, a cross-disciplinary, multi-cultural and inter-generational network of researchers and practitioners in fields related to systems and sustainability which was founded in 1982 by Dennis and Donella Meadows—co-authors of the ground-breaking book “The Limits to Growth”. This is an important community for her, and one to which she has actively contributed for over 14 years. Previous work affiliations include: Director of Capacity Development at LEAD International (Leadership for Environment and Development – London), Programme Manager at the International Academy of the Environment (Geneva), and Environment Specialist, International Labour Office (United Nations Geneva).
