Sylvia Davies

Sustainability Trainer

Sylvia is our lead trainer on Carbon Literacy in English and Welsh. She also delivers Nabod Natur – Nature Wise.

Sylvia loves being a Sustainability Trainer because she gets the privilege of seeing organisations find their niche on the path to sustainable development and recognising where they can make impactful change. She is also a perpetual learner and always seeks to gain knowledge, insight and feedback from those she trains in order to inform and improve her pedagogy and future courses. “Every day is a learning day” is very much her motto.

Jason Shilcock

Sustainability Trainer

Jason is extremely passionate about community renewable energy (the subject of his master’s thesis) and raising awareness about the climate and nature emergency, which is why he sees Cynnal Cymru’s sustainability training as such an important tool in promoting the environment, mitigating climate change and learning how to reduce our impact on nature and our surroundings.

With several years’ experience teaching English as a second language, Jason understands how individuals learn in diverse ways, and designs and adapts his tutoring to make sure everyone can get the most out of their Carbon Literacy or Nature Wise training.

Jason has been learning Welsh for over eight years, reaching Advanced level and referring to himself a “siaradwr newydd” (new Welsh speaker).
