Shona is also a member of the Catching a Wave Collective ( CaW combines expertise in environmental and social sciences with a broad range of arts disciplines in order to engage multiple audiences in discourse around oceans and coasts. CaW aims to ensure that the visualisation and realisation of solutions and pathways to sustainability become more reachable for all, from local to global scales and is a partner in the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.   CaW is striving to overcome existing disciplinary divisions across academia and society by forming an equitable and integrated challenge-led collaboration. The collective is a core partnership between scholars and artists based at East Carolina University, Coastal Studies Institute, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, University of Wisconsin-Madison, University College Cork, and Brunel University London.
