• Hi, I'm Becca. I write about big ideas and global issues, tell stories about people who are changing the world, and help environmentally- and socially-minded organisations be more of who they are.

     

    I have put words together for organisations like WWF, Comic Relief, and B Lab. And I have written articles for publications including the BBC and The Ecologist.

  • How I can help

        

       

    > storytelling & journalism

    I write about sustainability, the environment, human rights and social change. My articles break down the facts behind global issues and spotlight the human stories behind the environmental crisis and how we fix it.

    > copywriting

    Doing good doesn't always sound exciting. My job is to make sure it does. I create tone of voice guidelines that embrace the unexpected, and write brand-led copy for webpages, blogs, reports and campaigns.
