Biography

After completing her Master of Social Sciences degree in Geography, including papers in Earth Sciences, Jenny Townsend taught Geography for several years in secondary schools in both New Zealand and the UK.  She then took up a senior role in West London as an adult and community learning manager.  Seven years ago Jenny set up Townsend Consultancy Ltd, a company which provides specialist consultancy services to schools, charities and a range of other organisations.  She has completed a number of projects on environmental sustainability. In 2012-2013, for example, Townsend Consultancy Ltd. was commissioned by the University of Aberdeen to develop school resources for A Level students across the UK based on the latest scientific research on peatlands.  The purpose of this project was to give pupils a unique insight into the value of peatlands to UK society, demonstrate how they have been damaged and outline what is being done to restore and protect them.  These resources can now be accessed through the National Parks website.
