My name is Alicia Richins and I am a Canadian-born, Caribbean-raised agent of change based in Toronto, Ontario. My educational and professional background spans ecological economics, critical urban planning, international development, and most recently, social finance. As a proud dual citizen of Canada and Trinidad and Tobago, I am particularly interested in partnerships for the achievement of the SDGs, and ecologically sustainable development more broadly, in both the Global North & South. More specifically, I am personally moved to act on Goals 11, 12 and 13 in particular to secure safe and prosperous climate futures for all people and the planet.
I'm also a musician, and always looking for ways to also enhance my creative development and expression.
