Kacey Peters

Regular Contributor – (she/her)

Kacey is currently studying for a masters in International Development: Environment and Climate Change at the University of Manchester. What sparked her desire to study this was her interest in how those from the most marginalised groups (particularly women and minority ethnic groups in low income countries) deal with the impacts of climate change. Kacey is excited to start writing for Rehabilitating Earth to develop her writing skills and deepen her knowledge of environmental issues beyond university.

Yennah Smart

Regular Contributor – (she/her)

Yennah is currently completing a Masters in History, with a focus on racial inequality and social change. Her passion for this subject stems from a fascination with people and how societies work. Climate change provides an insight into a lot of divisions in terms of class, gender and ethnicity, making it a crucial topic to explore in order to unpack and understand the world around us.

Yennah hopes to write predominantly in the Arts and Literature section as this is where her interests lie. She believes that in order to address the climate crisis, people from all different mediums need to work together to illuminate the changes we can make. The environment is at the centre of so much art, both as an inspiration, a subject or simply a setting in which topics can be contextualised. Hopefully, the discussion of art can help to bring the wider message of Rehabilitating Earth to life.
