Jeanne Moore

Dr. Jeanne Moore primarily works on climate and sustainable development projects in NESC, most recently on a just transition, sustainable recovery from Covid-19 and climate policy. Previous Council work has examined the social and behavioural aspects of climate change, circular economy, and environmental policy integration, community engagement in wind energy and the role and future of environmental data. She has also worked on quality and standards in disability services for NESC. As part of her role, she has contributed to Council Reports, represented NESC on advisory committees, addressed conferences and policy forums and presented to Oireachtas Committees on climate change.

Prior to April 2010, Jeanne was a Social Policy Analyst with the National Economic and Social Forum (NESF) for 4 years where she worked on projects in child literacy and mental health. Before working with the NESF, she lectured in social and environmental psychology at the University of Teesside, Middlesbrough and directed research projects on home, homeworking and quality of life and women’s employment decisions. Prior to that, she worked as a research consultant for the Combat Poverty Agency and the Arts Council, as well as a researcher for Focus Ireland. Jeanne has a BA (Hons) Degree in Psychology and Sociology from Trinity College Dublin, a Masters in Environmental Psychology from the University of Surrey and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Northumbria. Her PhD in Environmental Psychology, from the University of Liverpool, focused on homelessness and the meaning of home.
