jane riddiford
founding director

Jane co-founded Global Generation in 2004. With more than 20 years experience in delivering environmental, arts & vocational training projects in New Zealand & UK.

She managed a City Farm for Framework Trust and developed school grounds as a learning resource for the Dept of Education, set up and ran an NVQ Horticulture programme for Camden Job Train and co-ordinated Camden's Environmental Education Network.

She also managed Rise Phoenix a community arts organisation that worked with children and young people in the war torn areas of the Balkans, in Tanzania and in Camden.

Her interest in young people and projects that bring different parts of the community together has been a consistent thread throughout her working life. Her love of the outdoors began as a child growing up on a farm in New Zealand.

She holds an MSc in Responsibility and Business practice from Bath School of Management and is currently undertaking an Action Research based Doctorate in Organisational Change at Ashridge Business School, which is drawing upon her experience with Global Generation.
