Alison Jenkins



I’m originally from the UK but British Columbia has been my home for the past 10 years. I was drawn to BC by the mountains and the recreation opportunities that they presented. I have a Masters degree in Renewable Energy Systems Technology from Loughborough University and worked in the wind energy sector in the UK for several years. Living in Whistler gave me an opportunity to become a ski instructor and work in the local snow school. In 2020 I completed a Certificate in Community Energy Management from BCIT and now work as a Community Energy Analyst for the Community Energy Association. In this role I work with local governments across the Province on climate action.

Policy Statement:

As residents of Whistler and British Columbia, we need to take action to preserve nature, eliminate waste and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. There are actions that we can take at a personal level such as utilizing transit and cycling instead of driving and being considerate of our food choices. At a community level local government, schools, businesses, and the non-profit sector have a responsibility to protect habitat, educate and engage residents on climate action and waste, and demonstrate leadership. We must tell the Provincial government to protect the remaining old growth forest.
