Environmental College Representative
Tim has a Master’s degree in Water & Environmental Engineering from UCD and worked as a volunteer in Africa in the areas of irrigation and rural water supply. He was employed by a small Wicklow-based environmental consultancy specialising in the protection and development of groundwater and surface water. Tim is concerned about the potential impacts of climate change on our landscapes and coasts and is also interested in the increased risk of flooding and environmental degradation in general. Tim is interested in nature and conservation and has been a member of Bird Watch Ireland for a number of years. Tim is also interested in local environment and heritage and has volunteered with Arklow Tidy Towns doing clearance work on the Old Kilbride graveyard project. Tim also volunteers teaching conversational English to migrants under the Fáílte Isteach community project on a weekly basis during term-time. Tim hopes to be able to bring some of his technical and engineering knowledge and his concern for the natural environment to the SPC meetings.
