Leslie Watson

Congratulations to Leslie Watson who features as our next #ClassOf2020 spotlight. Leslie graduated with an MSc with merit in Climate Justice and shares her experience below:

“My best memory was heading into a lecture again and finding the experience was just as it had been forty years ago! The sense of something happening between minds in real time is something I will miss and of course from now on the physical nature of this may change for all.

“I’ve had a career in sustainability. Some of us are weary from working so long to promote a transformation. With things heading in the wrong direction for a socially just, healthy future (and after widowhood & redundancy) a return to learning called. GCU’s ‘Common Good’ mantra and the unique nature of the Climate Justice course won me over. It’s been reassuring to spend time with young people and hear their sound instincts and wisdom about the way ahead. We need a new shared leadership to replace the gaping void. GCU is well placed to play its part. I hope to do what I can too.”

Congratulations Leslie and thank you for playing your part in helping to create a more socially just world! We are proud of each and every one of our graduates. We wish you all the very best for the future and hope you keep in touch.
