Speakers Bio

In 2019, Emily’s work received recognition as a Point of Light award recipient from the British Prime Minister and a Young Citizen Award from Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland. In 2020, Emily was awarded the highest accolade a young person can achieve for social action and humanitarian efforts: the Diana Award.

Emily is also currently working on the official youth engagement group of the G7 on the climate and environment policy track, the highest level of international decision making.

Emily studied her Master’s degree at the University of Exeter, where she researched the role of microplastics in the dissemination of potentially pathogenic or antibiotic- resistant bacteria.


“When we talk about environmental issues, we connect to them and we learn. Only when we know better can we do better – and I am grateful to have the opportunity to discuss these issues"
