Tara is a Programmes Executive at Rethink Ireland.

Tara has a BA in Sustainability and Spanish from the University of Exeter, where she also spent a year studying in Mexico and working with Slow Food Mexico on local food system projects with indigenous communities in Oaxaca and Chiapas. 

Her passion for societal issues has developed through working and volunteering with organisations in the charity sector in the UK and internationally.
