Triumph for the KATS Team!

It’s awards season at Newcastle University and members of the KATS team have been recognised for their achievements!

On the 27th April, our very own KATS curator, Professor Pauline Dixon, was awarded Supervisor of the Year at Newcastle University’s Education awards. Pauline was recognised for her outstanding efforts to supporting and guiding postgraduate research students. Pauline is passionate about sustainable development and has years of experience conducting groundbreaking research with children all around the world. She created the KATS project and has played an integral role in making it grow into a global success.

This week Elle Young, the KATS Lead, was shortlisted in the Early Career Researcher category at Newcastle University’s Engagement & Place awards for her role in delivering the KATS project to children in the UK, Barbados and India. Elle also won Worker of the Year at the university’s Celebrating Success awards for her going above and beyond in her role in delivering climate change education to young people all over the globe.

We are certainly very proud of the KATS team for their achievements, well done!
