James Szymankiewicz's picture

I am a doctor, environmental activist and a surfer !! I believe that the disconnect that exists between us and our natural world is the cause of much of the trouble we now find ourselves in!! I am passionate about reconnecting people with nature to improve their physical and mental health and help them value the ecosystem services that we rely on for life. I lead on the implementation of the Naturally Healthy agenda as Chair of Devon Local Nature Partnership and Vice Chair of the North Devon GP Collaborative board. We work with DEFRA, Healthcare Commissioners, Providers, Devon County Council and a range of environmental organisations. It is an exciting time and these work streams are progressing rapidly!! I also helped set up Plastic Free North Devon and continue to run engagement events in our community.
