The director of the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Sustainable Solutions has been made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (RSA).
Jaime L. Toney, Professor in Environmental and Climate Science at the School of Geographical & Earth Sciences, joins 30,000 other Fellows from around the world already working to make a positive impact on society.
Professor Toney is an organic geochemist whose work aims to develop our understanding of how the Earth has responded to climate change in the past and how continued global warming might affect the planet’s future.
Her nomination for the Fellowship recognises the impact of her work in co-founding and directing the Centre for Sustainable Solutions. The Centre, which opened in April 2020, aims to help individuals, communities and organisations to act towards a sustainable future through education, research and partnership.
Professor Toney, Professor in Environmental and Climate Science said: "I’m proud to have been accepted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and delighted to be joining such a distinguished group of thinkers, innovators and activists.
"The Royal Society of Arts’ vision of ’a world where everyone is able to participate in working towards a better future’ is perfectly aligned with the aims of the Centre for Sustainable Solutions. I’m looking forward to connecting with other Fellows around the globe to make that vision a reality."
The RSA Fellowship was established in 1754 to build an inclusive network of those who champion curiosity, creativity and better ways of thinking, acting and delivering change.
