YEF Chair Kate stands down

8 August 2014

Kate Lock, Chair of York Environment Forum, has announced her intention to stand down from the position in order to pursue a new career in academia.

Kate, who took over as Chair of the Forum from Jonathan Tyler in December 2010, has overseen substantial changes in the organisation, increasing its presence as the voice for the environment in York, improving its communications and online status, increasing its partnership work with City of York Council and other groups and steering the Forum to becoming a constituted body.

Environmental campaigner, writer and researcher Kate, 53, will be commencing full-time study doing an MSc in Sustainability specialising in Environmental Politics and Policy at the University of Leeds in September 2014.
