Guppi Bola is an organiser, trainer, educator and writer with over ten years experience supporting organisations in their campaigns and research work around social justice. She has worked in Oxfam GB, New Economics Foundation, New Economy Organisers Network, Quakers in Britain and recently finished a role as Interim-Director of Medact (her dream job!). Guppi worked briefly at Joint Council for Welfare of Immigrants in 2018 tackling the hostile environment in the NHS - maybe the best 6 months of her campaigning career :)

Her academic background is in public health and professional work has focused on economic justice and climate action. She is the co-founder of Healthy Planet (health students climate campaign), UK Youth Climate Coalition, and most recently Working on Our Power - a leadership programme for non-binary/women of colour in Europe. She is also one part of double trouble duo Decolonising Economics - bringing a deeper analysis of Britains colonial history to conversations around racial inequality. 

Fun fact! Guppi led 40,000 people through London on a climate march atop a chip-fat fuelled double decker bus. You can find out more about at www.guppibola.com
