Facilitating engagement, creating connections, inspiring action to environmental sustainability

Emily profile_London May 2012 - CopyAbout Emily:

Basic info: Emily Dunning, 28, grew up in Lincolnshire, live in Cambridge.

Education: Studied Geography at Cambridge University.

Work: UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre, Student Hubs, Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, University of Cambridge Environment and Energy Section.

Career: Climate change is the biggest challenge we’ve ever faced and since university I’ve been trying to play my part in tackling it. My focus is on helping create the culture change necessary for all of us to live environmentally sustainable lifestyles that are within the earth’s limits. Helping to crack that nut is my main career goal. Read on below for more.

Hobbies: I love travelling, spending time with friends and family, walking and enjoying nature, delicious food, meaningful conversations, figuring out how to achieve environmental sustainability, living life to the full and enjoying every day.

Inspirations and motivations:

Beautiful scenery, amazing people, cheesy yet profound quotes (examples below!).

“Be the change you want to see in the world.”

“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour, catch the trade wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Dream to travel overland from the UK to Australasia.

Evolving understanding of motivations, skills, and what you enjoy coming together to define your purpose in life.

“The Earth is not a gift from our parents, it is a loan from our children”.


To move towards a sustainable and just world, we each need to find what drives us, what makes the most of what we’re good at and what we enjoy doing. Bringing these together unlocks the potential in each of us to move towards the future we seek. I want to learn how people around the world are doing that, what opportunities they are finding and what challenges they are overcoming.

I want to increase my own understanding of how I can best use my abilities to connect; to learn, understand and listen; to foster collaborations and add value to the realm of those striving for environmental sustainability and social justice.

  1. Greetings to you in mighty name above all other names Jesus Christ. Im very much happy to write to since i have went through your website and have seen great work on which you are doing by the grace of God to spread the true gospel.

    Am pastor Dominic from East Africa Kenya of NYANZAKIA CHRISTIAN CHURCH with 48 members ,34 Children whereby 18 among the children are poor orphans under my care .

    I hereby request for affiliation to partner with you in spreading the true gospel of which you are doing as the say that ; go to all nation and preach the gospel to every creature on earth. As we are one in Christ even if far in distance continue to pray for us here in Kenya to have material for preaching the gospel since we do not have enough bibles to read here in the church since many Christians here don’t understand English therefore pray for us to have bibles of our local language.

    Also pray for poor orphans under my care to have enough food , clothes ,shoes and blanks since we don’t have enough at the moment.will be happy to hear from from you brethren as we pray to each other may be blessed
    Yours Faithfully in Christ
