Name: Emma Nicol
Campaign: Food Waste
What made you apply to be a Change Creator?
I applied to be a Change Creator because I wanted to work with a group of people who have the same passion to create social change as I do. I’m particularly passionate about the environment and wanted to learn about how we can use sensor technology to inspire people to change.
What are you up to when you’re not campaign developing with Change Creators?
I’m currently studying for a BA (Hons) in Illustration at Bristol UWE which takes up most of my time. I love to make work about environmental issues or scientific facts as I feel that art is a great way to communicate the information to a wide audience. I volunteer with Arnolfini and have a part time job. When I have free time I like to travel, see live music and go to art galleries or museums.
What’s been you favourite part of Change Creators so far?
My favourite part has been meeting people who are doing things already to try and create social change, it’s inspiring to see what other people are doing. It’s been great to work in a team of people in my age group who are passionate about social change.
What do you want to achieve through your campaign?
It would be great to see our campaign have an impact firstly in Bristol and then maybe further afield. Food waste is something that we can all help reduce.
