We are thrilled that Patty Martin will be joining the Travel Foundation family as our new Climate Consultant. Patty will be working on a number of our projects including our new tourism and sustainability program in British Columbia and our climate training program for destinations with Expedia.
Patty is a scientist, speaker, and climate consultant empowering small business and communities into meaningful and impactful climate action. As well as coming on board with us, Patty also works as a Science Consultant for Oregon Coast Visitors Association and runs a podcast called The Disobedient Scientist, a show about humanity and the re-imagination of science.
She says: “I am a scientist by training and work as a climate coach and consultant with leaders from all over to bring climate science and technology into decision making moments. My hope is that I can help support you in feeling confident that you are making impactful choices. I think climate action is fundamentally about making human connection, so in addition to science, I bring storytelling, and art, and poetry into a lot of the work that I do.”
