Edward de Quay
Edward is the ‘Carbon Transition Officer’ for the LSRI, developing strands of work to help the Church decarbonise in a way consistent with its teaching. He is inspired by the potential for the Church to make a real difference in responding to the ecological crisis and by the possibilities for parish community building as a result of such a response.
Edward has spent his career to date working for the Catholic Church on the practical applications of Catholic Social Teaching, both in community and in the context of the environment. In spare moments he helps out with Arundel and Brighton’s ‘Journey to 2030’ project.
Edward thinks the world would be a better place if everyone read at least one James Herriot book and that the Shoebill is the most excellent animal on the planet.
Edward co-leads on the Diocese of Salford decarbonisation strategy, which seeks to develop a replicable model for dioceses to follow. This is a two-year research project in partnership with St Mary’s University, Twickenham and the LSRI.
