Alex Walker

Climate Finance Program Manager

Alex is originally from the South of England, but has been concerned with Canadian environmental protection since the moment they arrived. They have been interested in stopping climate change for their whole life, which led them to pursue their Masters in Environmental Studies at York University, studying climate change and social change. From growing up through the financial crash to blocking roads as part of divestment campaigns, Alex has long wanted to turn their efforts to climate finance. With a wide range of experience in political campaigning, fundraising, the sustainable food sector and non-profits, they are passionate about leveraging money for good, not for profit.
