Argyll, United Kingdom

Focused on practical solutions, with an environmental and farm animal welfare focus, ffinlo is active in advising government ministers and members of the public on sustainable and accountable agriculture and aquaculture.

Although ffinlo started out as a theatre designer, it didn’t take long for him to realise his path in life was to be something very different. In 1997 a Quaker summer school in Geneva sparked his passion for politics. After retraining, ffinlo went on to become the party manager for the Green Party followed by roles with Adopt-A-Minefield, and the Manx National Farmers’ Union where he ran a highly successful campaign reconnecting farmers with local people. ffinlo has also worked as an environmental journalist and radio broadcaster. He contends that his design background was the perfect training for policy development as both disciplines are about fitting the best components into the right box in the most effective way.

sankalpa has allowed a good idea to become a force for change and has allowed Farmwel to establish itself as a credible force in the Brexit/agriculture debate.
