Julien Pritchard interviews Adam McCusker
How long have you been involved with BFoE?
I have been doing campaign volunteering for around 6 months at BFoE, helping out in as many different roles as I can find, as I quite enjoy being involved in all sorts of aspects of campaigning
How did you find out about BFoE?
I suppose I have always known about BFoE, having visited the reception and cafe at the warehouse, and occasionally reading the BFoE newsletter. I have also in the past been a subscriber to the national FoE magazine.
What do you do here?
I’m lead transport campaigner at BfoE. I come into the office once a week to help out organising campaigns and have some input into the Monday meetings here at the Warehouse. I also try to get involved on the stalls that BfoE sets up at various events around the city.
What do you like about working here?
It’s very community minded and every body sings off the same hymn sheet so to speak. Discussions tend to involve a lot of head nodding.
What have you learnt from volunteering with BFoE?
I’ve learnt a lot more about environmental issues and how to tackle them locally first, being active politically and how important it is to get involved in democracy.
What do you think is the most important environmental issue and why?
Food – its production and its waste are the most significant issues the world has to tackle. We need to look at ecosystems in nature to find the best ways to stop so much energy wastage in our systems.
What’s your best green tip/advice?
