Martin Stott


My name is Martin Stott.  As a sustainable development practitioner I have focused on the local. My recent career has been in local government, but in different ways my whole working life has been devoted to sustainable solutions.

This website is a natural development of the approach I have always taken, exploring local solutions to global issues, working primarily with colleagues in UK local government, but ranging much more widely, collaborating with friends and colleagues in business, academia, education and the voluntary sector in the UK, Europe, USA and across the world.

To promote this I launched this website in 2009. I post article of interest regularly and  I started blogging from this site in September 2012. Take a look at the  blog section.  I hope to post every few weeks.

I also ‘tweet’ regularly and you can follow me @divinity65.

I  am a National Policy Adviser to the Royal Town Planning Institute, a Member of the Chartered Institute of Wastes Management and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society.

Take a  look at some of the things I am up to and if you think we might be able to help each other in some way get in touch.
