Alice Chautard

weADAPT Platform and Content Manager

I am a communications and knowledge exchange professional, currently working for SEI Oxford as weADAPT platform and content manager. In this role, I am in charge of weADAPT’s the content, as well as developing its network of users, and supporting its overall development.

Prior to this role, I was Communications and Knowledge Exchange Manager for Oxford University’s REACH programme, a 10-year global consortium funded by FCDO and led by the University, to improve water security for 10 million people in Africa and Asia. As part of the role, I led work on inclusive and ethical communications, capacity building and impact.

I am also a documentary storyteller combining multimedia tools such as photography, illustration, graphic design, and video to communicate environmental, water and climate research. In 2017, I founded the Himalayas to Ocean (H2O) documentary project.

I have a background in environmental sciences, and water policy and management, with a BSc from McGill University, and an MSc from Oxford University. I am  passionate about communicating science in engaging, fun, inclusive and ethical ways to support decision making and impact.
