Cindy Forde


Former CEO, Cambridge Science Centre

Cindy Forde was the CEO of Cambridge Science Centre from 2015 to 2017. She has an award-winning career in sustainability and communications working internationally with organisations endeavouring to make positive change. She holds an MSc in Sustainability and Business. She is a sustainability innovator and has spent over fifteen years advancing economic, corporate and educational models that value the world’s natural resources as our most important asset. She uses creativity as a catalyst to reconnect and reenergise broken or fragmented systems and to galvanise new approaches to generating prosperity and to problem solving.

She has worked with leaders across sectors including the UN, government, NGOs, finance, business, technology and education. Prior to joining the Cambridge Science Centre, Cindy was Managing Director of the Blue Marine Foundation heading a global team dedicated to protecting and regenerating the world’s oceans.

She believes that hands on adventures in science enable children not only to explore and understand how things work, but also how they themselves work, the potential they have inside themselves to invent, discover and make a positive contribution to this world. Acquiring this knowledge should be great fun. It also equips young people to innovate or be part of the solutions to some of societies most pressing problems.
