Tilly joined the NUS Sustainability team in 2016 and manages the Student Eats programme with Odette. Our aim is to work with students to create a more equitable food system by putting healthy and sustainable food at the heart of the campuses across the UK. This includes supporting students to set up social enterprises selling sustainable food as well as supporting food growing initiatives on campus. In addition to working for SOS she co-ordinates the Food Co-op project at Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming, and co-founder of Six Legs Farm, a family business breeding crickets as a sustainable protein option.
Tilly is a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and full member of the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES), has an MA in Sustainable Development Advocacy and a degree in Law. Before starting at SOS-UK Tilly spent over ten years working with 16-25-year-olds on local and international sustainability initiatives, she is a founding trustee for Worcester Roots Foundation (a youth-led environmental charity) and is a Director of Stockwood Community Benefit Society, a community-owned organic and biodynamic farm and business park in Worcestershire. Spare time passions include global family travel without flying, music festivals and of course…crickets (the chirping kind rather than the sport).
