Lecturer in Geography, Environment and Sustainability, University of Glasgow

Ria is a Lecturer in Geography, Sustainability and Environment at the University of Glasgow within the School of Education. She is also a Senior Visiting Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Teaching and Learning at the University of Warwick and a Research Affiliate of the Sustainable Places Research Institute at Cardiff University.

Her interest in ecopedagogy began while working at the Eden Project in Cornwall, where she worked as a researcher for Climate Change Education programmes. She has spent most of the past decade in academia, researching and teaching in the field of ecopedagogy, exploring the role of education, in a range of formal and informal contexts and in tackling environmental crises and climate change.

Ria is particularly interested in the role of narratives in environmental learning and climate change education and shares on Twitter an (almost!) nightly story on this theme (@riadunkley). You can view these by using the hashtag #ecostory

She would love to hear what ecostories you think help convey environmental and climate aware messages.
