Biography

Rowan joined Shared Future in May 2023 as Project Officer, providing technical and management support for citizens juries, climate assemblies, and other deliberative projects.

Rowan has an M.Litt. in Middle East, Caucasus, and Central Asia Security Studies, which he obtained at the University of St. Andrews. His dissertation focused on transboundary water security, and he has since worked on international climate issues with UNEP and the Carbon Trust. He is excited by the potential for citizen’s assemblies to create peace within and beyond borders, empower those who have given up on existing political processes, and help solve ‘wicked problems’.

Prior to joining Shared Future as a Project Officer, he gained experience in sustainability consulting, policy analysis, and communications.

Outside of work, he enjoys Munro-bagging, running, and ballroom dancing.
