Kaska Hempel

Climate Communications Worker

Kaska started her journey in Poland, tried Australia for a bit and finally ended up in Scotland just over 10 years ago. She is in love with her new home, its amazing people, white beaches, wide open spaces, ancient henges and brochs.

She’s using her background in ecology and botany, along with experience in online learning and social media to support local projects involved in growing food, action on climate change and getting children and adults close to nature. She will be helping Transition St Andrews and their partners on Community Share for Climate Care project tackle climate change communications.

She enjoys dancing, trying out new recipes from around the world and lighting a spark of curiosity in children’s eyes.
