Paul Wilson is a professional writer and artist, based out of Lake and specialises in telling stories about our home. He mixes folklore and history as well ecological messages to promote and raise awareness. Paul moved back to the Island 4 years ago with his family and since returning has started a magazine for local, unpublished writers as well as volunteering for a number of arts-based projects.
Paul is passionate about the Island, its ecology, sustainability, and local business. He believes we need to be investing locally and look at ways of supporting our community as well as working towards a renewable future. With the growth of remote working, Paul believes that the Island has the opportunity to rejuvenate the Island economy from an unsustainable “tourist” destination, to a technology hub.
“The people of the Island deserve more than the status quo, they deserve better salaries, better working conditions and exciting careers. The Island has a lot of issues and the only way to address them is by thinking differently.” Progress needs to be made and Paul believes we can lead the way with a mix of ecological sustainability and new ways of working. We can build a better Island together by being bold, and looking after our home.
