Sr Anouska Robinson-Biggin fcJ
I am a Catholic religious sister (aka nun) with the Faithful Companions of Jesus and have worked at Goldsmiths as an Associate Catholic Chaplain since 2013.
I am here for students and staff of all faiths and none but have a desire to accompany/walk with Catholic students and staff in particular.
I'm the Associate Chaplain at Goldsmiths, University of London. I am a missionary from Hong Kong as well as a Chinese pastor at the local church (East London Alliance Church) in Deptford.
I work with Jewish students across London. I'm regularly in touch with the Jewish community here at Goldsmiths to support their events and social activities.
Don de Silva
Everyone is talking about climate change and sustainability. I am a former Senior Official of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
At UNEP, I was part of a team, which launched initiatives to create awareness about issues like climate and sustainability throughout the world. Now, I work as a voluntary Buddhist Chaplain and Mentor.
I also provide training in meditation and mindfulness practises for reducing stress, studying better, increasing focus, and developing good health and wellbeing.
I am committed to highlighting links between Buddhism, Interfaith, Sustainability and Justice. That’s why I am glad to be working with Goldsmiths.
