Meet The Speakers!

Rosina Al-Shaater, Environmental Community Engagement Officer, Black and Green Ambassadors

Rosina is exploring the relationships that black and brown people in Bristol have with nature, using a multimedia storytelling approach to document, celebrate and share the ways people incorporate nature into their life and how this contributes to their health and wellbeing. Rosina is capturing stories, wisdom, skills and experiences centred around nature from all generations and cultures. She has particularly been working with the Windrush Generation. With this project she aims to decolonise nature and the wider environmental movement by increasing representation and helping black and brown people recognise the ‘expert’ in themselves and each other. Through this, she hopes to also increase access to knowledge around working nature and provide a route for more black and brown people to engage in the wider environmental movement.


Gil Martin, Estate Manager, Belmont Estate

Gil Martin is the Estate Manager at Belmont, a thriving estate just outside of Bristol with a mission of environmental restoration and the reconnection of people with nature, food, and themselves through the power of the natural world. Belmont aims to inspire community connection, restore biodiversity, and tackle climate change through nature-based education, regenerative agriculture, and outdoor shared experiences.


Verity White, Company Director, Wild Carbon CIC

A wildlife film-maker and environmental communicator with the BBC and other major broadcasters for 20+ years, Verity is now working on a new project to improve the outcome of carbon offsetting, by engaging businesses, working locally, and putting nature at the forefront of the process. Offering British companies the chance to invest in nature, restore UK biodiversity and sequester carbon. Offering the rewilding community access to scientific data about the carbon sequestration potential of naturally regenerating sites.
