Shyron Golding brings a rich and varied academic and professional experience to the environmental sector, and naturally adopts an interdisciplinary approach to complex environmental situations.

Motivated by a strong altruistic drive to help others and the planet, Shyron’s career has predominantly been within the non-profit and public sector, and their primary focus has been on finding creative, solution-focused ways of achieving the best outcome for all stakeholders.  

Alongside paid work and studying, they have volunteered for a variety of environmental projects, including the Jeevika Trust’s Smart Farm project, which seeks to  address the challenge of sustainable farming for poor and marginalised farmers (usually women) in climate-sensitive parts of rural southern India.

The smart farm project involves the utilisation of pre-existing solar photovoltaic panels to power cold storage units which will be used to store surplus harvest, rather than allowing any of it to go to waste. Climate change has created unpredictable weather patterns in many parts of the world, including India, therefore it is vital that any crops grown are kept rather than discarded.

The project also aims to generate a higher income for marginalised farmers. Shyron is especially passionate about solutions to environmental problems which incorporate social justice, which they believe to be a vital component in global sustainability.

Shyron has also assisted with international online conferences, a ‘green’ transport email campaign in which they emphasised the importance of less air pollution for all road users, Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) to refugees, and community gardening projects, in a voluntary capacity.

As a volunteer photoblogger for WEarthwhile - an online climate change resource project which captured people’s personal experiences of climate change all over the world - they enjoyed interviewing people about their experiences of climate change and writing about them.

In their former career in Occupational Therapy, which they studied to Master’s level, Shyron developed keen analytical and research skills, and the ability to consider and apply adaptive technologies to enable people to achieve their optimum potential.

Having also trained in classroom teaching in the past, Shyron finds it extremely rewarding to educate people through writing and presenting scientific information in meaningful and engaging ways.

As well as writing scientific articles, they are currently writing an eco-adventure novel set in the near future.
