7 — Yvonne Lynch, Urban Greening Strategist

June 9, 2021

I speak with Yvonne Lynch on greening the desert and the viral "Email-a-Tree" campaign she set up in Melbourne.

This week, I am joined by Yvonne Lynch, currently, Urban Greening & Climate Resilience Strategist at Green Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and former head of the City of Melbourne (Australia) Urban Forest and Ecology team, to discuss how her (career) journey led her to green the desert in Riyadh, the story behind the viral "Email-a-Tree" campaign she set up with her colleagues at the City of Melbourne, the emails that still bring her to tears, and much more.
