Ruth Redden awarded International Specialised Skills Institute and George Alexander Foundation fellowship

Ruth Redden, Context Associate was recently awarded an International Specialised Skills Institute and George Alexander Foundation fellowship.

Ruth’s fellowship research will broadly focus on building conservation and environmental sustainability. Sustainability will be defined according to the UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals, and the research will explore national and international standards of sustainable building conservation in practice.

The fellowship aims to develop guidelines for best practice sustainable building conservation in Australia, including recommendations on how Australian building and conservation practice could be improved to align with international efforts to combat climate change. Along with a number of GML Heritage and Context staff members, Ruth is a member of Australia ICOMOS’ National Scientific Committee on Energy and Sustainability and ICOMOS’ International Scientific Committee on Energy, Sustainability and Climate Change.

Ruth’s fellowship is supported by Context and we look forward to Ruth sharing the research outcomes with the team.
