Helen leads the implementation of the Zero Carbon Evolution strategy, an ambitious community endorsed plan to significantly reduce carbon emissions across Moreland by 2020. She works closely with Moreland City Council and the Moreland community.
Prior to MEFL, Helen worked in the UK as a policy advisor with a number of innovative government agencies – English Partnerships, CABE and the Sustainable Development Commission – where she focused on delivering sustainable communities.
More recently, Helen managed a project aiming to analyse the technical requirements necessary to reduce carbon emissions from the built environment, and to develop finance and delivery mechanisms to maximise benefits for local communities and understand how to engage, enable and inspire communities to take action.
Helen also spent several years living in Asia, where she worked with diverse communities to achieve sustainable outcomes.
