Megan is building on her academic background in Environment and Development to deliver ground-breaking programmes on air quality, water, energy and biodiversity that bring tangible benefits to both Londoners and our environment.

Megan co-delivers our Cleaner Air 4 Communities network  and, as part of this, she is engaging with people and groups in polluted neighbourhoods, to understand and map air quality and to develop action plans for positive change. She has expertise in pollution data mapping and is now coordinating our London-wide Air Quality Action Network, which shares pollution-busting knowledge and ideas and developing a mentoring network for local champions.

Megan is working on the Cleaner Air 4 Schools International programme, which is supported by the Fia Foundation. She has enabled school pupils in London, Delhi and Nairobi to map and monitor air pollution on their routes to school using LSx’s toolkit. She has had particular success in developing inspiring and creative educational activities that really make air pollution real for pupils and their families in London.

Megan is also helping to connect Londoners to nature through our Pollinator Paths project. She is working with our network of community gardens in Wandsworth to evaluate our pilot programme which has designed and distributed over 60 pollinator kits for window ledges or balconies.

Megan has gained experience in supporting communities from BAME backgrounds to unlock the benefits of sustainable lifestyles. She recently worked with the Mevlana Rumi Mosque in Edmonton Green to implement the pilot of LSx’s Faith and Water Toolkit. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used it as the main case study for her Masters dissertation.

Megan has a BSc of Arts from the University of Melbourne, having majored in Political and International Studies and minoring in Psychology, and is now awaiting graduation in December from the London School of Economics and Political Science for her MSc of Environment and Development.
