Luke is a project officer for Sheffield City Council – this involves the project management of green space regeneration for the Parks & Countryside Service, and the role allows him to contribute to sustaining the green spaces which he and the people of Sheffield enjoy. He previously worked for Groundwork, a national environmental charity which focusses on projects around environmental regeneration and sustainability. Here he led on a range of projects including an initiative which delivered practical energy efficiency advice and improvements to homes.
Luke completed his MA at the University of Sheffield; prior to that he studied Environmental Sciences at the University of Leeds. This is where his interest in the issues around climate change, resource use, and sustainable development arose.
His involvement with Sheffield Renewables began in 2010 after attending some meetings to find out more about the organisation and soon began volunteering, helping out in variety of ways from funding applications and blogs to actively assisting in the development of projects.
Luke joined the board in 2014 and is committed to steering the organisation to meet its aims, become sustainable and build upon its successes.
