Jess Gold

Musician and Educator

Jess co-founded School Councils UK and oversaw the roll out of ground-breaking school council resources reaching 50% of UK schools. Having become involved in Friends of the Earth, she began refocussing her educational interests into climate change and sustainability. As a sing-songwriter she was well placed to explore the important role of the arts in enabling children and adults understand new ways of helping create a climate safe future. Through workshops and her concert programme, “The Greener Transport Show”, she trialled materials that evolved into Project Earth Rock.
