Jenha Phillips



Bringing to life Scion’s stories is what Jenha and her team seek to do. The aim is to create widespread awareness of Scion’s objectives and its incredible science developments which enhance New Zealand’s prosperity, wellbeing and environment through trees. We want to engage with the local community and national stakeholders as we unleash the potential for trees to be at the heart of a low-carbon, biobased future.
