Ecogeographer brings together ongoing and completed projects ranging in size from small projects with like-minded individuals and collectives to large undertakings with more-than-profit businesses, charities, trusts and research institutes. All these projects deal with landscape-based issues. Whilst drawing on a team’s skill, I focus on innovation using the field of art, design and sustainability.

Ruritage worked with organisations at a local level and assisted them to regenerate their landscape and heritage through locally driven actions. I co-created visual methods so people who lived in the landscape could say how they felt about changes in their landscape.
UNLOCK NATURE: NATURE LIBÉRÉE is a digital citizen science project that is open to everyone in Mauritius. It explores how recent events such as Covid-19 and the Wakashio Oil Spill have affected natural landscapes and asks, have these changes been positive or negative?
