About Me

Welcome and thank you for reading.

My name is Jenny and I am a passionate environmental professional, avid traveller and photography enthusiast. I enjoy yoga, getting out and exploring the natural world and sharing conversations over a chai or coffee.

In 2010 I spent a few months volunteering on environment and education projects with a local NGO in rural Punjab, India. I recently relocated to Bangalore, in the south of India and am hoping to contribute to the environmental sector, through environmental education, consulting projects and photography.

With an academic background in International Relations, Economics and Mathematics, and professional experience in the scientific research, public and NGO sectors, I bring an array of diverse ideas and experience to environmental projects.

  1. Hi Jenny,

    I am writing from Harmony-Celebrate Age magazine that is based in India and features people over 60 years and their contributions to society. Mr Syed Sajjad Ahmed has recently embarked on a remarkable journey from Bangalore to Delhi in his solar- and battery-powered car. I see that you met him in 2012 and made a few pictures on him. I was wondering if you would be open to sharing these pictures for publication in my magazine. https://spinningthegreenwheel.wordpress.com/2012/05/10/handmade-solar-car/

    Please write to me with your response on nutasharego@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi Jenny,
    I’m loving your blog, having spent time in Punbjab India and am temporarily a consultant to the Environmental Services industry (US and worldwide) until I can get back to India in the long term – you are where I want to be!

    I’ve found a project in Bangladesh (which I know is not your direct area of focus) that I am really interested in. It’s called Farmers Voice and they have a blog you might like to read. He’s contacted me to try and help him find investment support for his initiate (which will be a steep challenge but I can’t bear to say no) and maybe, if you liked it, you could share it and see if anyone had any ideas for him.

    Anyway, I hope you receive this in the spirit it was intended – from one passionate environmental professional to another.

    • Hi Jemma,

      Thanks for your comment. It’s great to hear that you’re enjoying my blog! I was working in environmental policy back in Australia previously and just felt like I had to make it back to India somehow, so I understand how you feel.

      The Farmer’s Voice project does sound really fascinating. I’ll look into it a bit more and have a think about whether I know anyone who might be able to help. I’ll let you know how I go.

      Thanks for taking the time to connect and pass on the project information. I hope you continue to enjoy the blog and please do let me know if there are any topics you’d be interested to read more about!

      Good luck in your mission to come back to India! It would be great to connect in person over here!

      Cheers,

      Jenny
