Political Strategy Advisor
I’m a lifelong politics geek, and have been campaigning on nature and climate change since I was young, from climate education campaigns to putting nature at the heart of farming. Living in London, I’m particularly passionate about access to green space, and how important it is to our wellbeing, and I love long walks across the city. In my day job I work for the National Trust, talking with MPs and Peers about nature, conservation and heritage.

Jason Reeves BSc MSc CEnv MCIEEM is currently Head of Policy and Communications at an environmental professional body, where he is responsible for policy development and responses, advocacy, publications, website and wider communications. He has over 15 years experience in the environmental sector and is a Chartered Environmentalist.
To put it bluntly, I’m an all-round botanical fanatic! I love all things wildlife and am currently working as an ecologist, whilst I’m also Project Coordinator for the North-West Rare Plant Initiative, a conservation programme that I run with Chester Zoo looking to reverse the fortunes of over 40 plants at imminent risk of extinction within north-west England. As well as my ecology consultancy and conservation jobs, I also run regular training courses, most recently via the online platform, British Botany Training, looking to make training courses affordable to everybody.

Mark works in campaigns at CPRE, the countryside charity, and organises with the UK Youth Climate Coalition, whose mission is to mobilise and empower young people to take positive action for climate justice.

In his spare time, Mark enjoys biking, reading, music and (recently) cooking!
