Colin Webster

Education Content Manager


Role at the Foundation

Colin joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2012. He has taken on a variety of roles within the learning team, and these days works predominantly on curating content for the Disruptive Innovation Festival (DIF), supporting the development of the Schmidt MacArthur Fellowship and creating educational resources in a variety of formats. Planning for the DIF and curating content in conjunction with external and internal teams consumes most of his time. 


Prior to joining the Foundation, Colin worked in a number of educational roles. After graduating from the University of Edinburgh in Geography and Economic and Social History, he passed his Master's in Education, then subsequently taught Geography in a high school in Scotland. Throughout university he worked as a youth work manager, and youth work was a sector he returned to prior to working with the Foundation. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, and enjoys playing with his children at the beach. And drinking whisky.
