Edward de Quay
From 2020 to 2023 Edward was the ‘Integral Ecology Project Officer’ for the LSRI, working to facilitate the implementation of the integral ecology paradigm within ecclesial communities of England and Wales, particularly the Roman Catholic Church and the Jesuits in Britain.
Edward was a co-lead on the Guardians of Creation project, in partnership with Salford Diocese and St Mary's University, Twickenham. This work looked to help Catholic dioceses decarbonise effectively in a way that is consistent with Catholic Social Teaching. As part of this work he developed and coordinated a network of Diocesan Environmental Leads, and was also part of the decarbonisation team for the Jesuits in Britain.
Research in development includes a focus on integral ecology and agriculture, looking to understand what this relationship should include in theory and practice.
Edward co-led on the Diocese of Salford decarbonisation strategy, which sought to develop a replicable model for dioceses to follow. This was a two-year research project in partnership with St Mary’s University, Twickenham and the LSRI.
