Pavel grew up bouncing between Great Britain and Alberta and then attended York University in Toronto, where he earned a Master of Environmental Studies in 2007. Since graduating, he served as the Sustainability Coordinator for York University and then as the Sustainability Coordinator for the University of Toronto, as well as taking on several volunteer roles and Board positions in the sustainability space.
Pavel began as the Executive Director for Sustainable Kingston in September 2017. Previously, he was hired as the Operations Director in March 2017 after joining the team as a Policy Analyst in August 2016.
Pavel is a wholehearted advocate for a target-based approach to sustainability, where we set clear goals, engage our members and partners in action-oriented programs and projects, and then measure and assess our impact.
Gabriel joined the Sustainable Kingston team in February of 2017 as the organization’s first Program Development Coordinator. He is focused on increasing community engagement in Sustainable Kingston's programs and projects. As a creative and enthusiastic lover of people, Gabriel has embraced his role as a community liaison and is passionate about building relationships and social capacity. He is motivated by both a deep sense of social responsibility and, more simply, the desire to have fun and connect with people.
A native to Kingston, Gabriel returned to the city in 2016 after graduating from Trent University with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies. Prior to Sustainable Kingston, Gabriel worked in landscape architecture, organic farming, forestry, and artisanal butchery. He continues to draw inspiration from the Kingston business community’s growing uptake and commitment to climate action.
We are fortunate to work with a diverse and dedicated team committed to the success of Sustainable Kingston.
