Katherine Ellsworth-Krebs is a social climate scientist based near the Lake District, researching low-carbon living in high-income countries. Her desire for answers on how to live sustainably led her from her childhood home in Seattle to Scotland, home to the UK’s flagship sustainability degree. Katherine has a BSc and PhD in Sustainable Development from the University of St Andrews where she also co-founded both a Transition Town and a bike rental scheme. For nearly a decade she has lectured on sustainable consumption and climate activism at UK universities. Her peer-reviewed papers and personal essays have appeared in Nature Energy, Literary Veganism, Fast Company, among others. Most mornings she can be found with muddy knees watering in the greenhouse or recording content for her podcast Joyful Climate Writing.
