Jenni Jones – MSc Student, University of Portsmouth
We have awarded a research grant to Jenni Jones who is looking into regional perceptions of sustainable seafood and how we might potentially change attitudes in the future.
Having graduated with a BSc in Environmental and Geographical Studies with History (2006), Jennifer turned to teaching as her first career. She became a senior teacher and trainer at one of the leading language schools in the country, and in 2015 co-founded a free class and university scholarship programme for refugees and asylum seekers; to date, 15 individuals have been supported into higher education and many more into employment.
Jenni is a strong believer in the power of individuals and community groups to make a difference. A life-long resident of the Solent region, she currently volunteers with Southsea Beachwatch and is a Marine Champion with the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust
