Welcome

Hi. My name is Samuel Smith. I work in the field of sustainability, exploring how we can be smarter in the way we live and interact with our planet and each other. Most of my work focuses on how we can create shifts in our food and farming systems so they support better livelihoods, healthier lifestyles and much greater biodiversity. I’m also interested in rapid decarbonisation and deep adaptation. I work at Forum for the Future, an international NGO based in London.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar and violin, going swimming in wild places and spending time in the mountains. Now and then, I also love to DJ, playing all sorts of musical curiosities.

This website is to share some reflections and practice writing, often related to my work in sustainability. I also have some music pages and a “scrapbook” which is an irregular photo-log of adventures which I enjoy keeping for myself, more than for anyone else. I do this instead of Instagram or Facebook, which I find come with all sorts of social stress, unwelcome advertising and data privacy issues.

Thanks for visiting and if for any reason you’d like to get in touch, please don’t hesitate to drop me an email: ssmith1985 at gmail dot com.
