Lauren Cross


After graduating from Lancaster University in 2021, I continued my studies at UCL completing an MSc in Environment, Politics, and Society. My master’s thesis looked at the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, comparing them with their predecessors, the Millennium Development Goals. Whilst my undergraduate dissertation focused on the discourse of personal responsibility of climate change mitigation- specifically in regards to transportation and the rising popularity of electric vehicles.

Person I most admire:
Somebody I find particularly admirable is Margaret Murie, a woman often referred to as ‘the Grandmother of the Conservation Movement’. Margaret played an integral part in the passage of the 1964 Wilderness Act, subsequently protecting 9.1 million acres of forests within America. The work Margaret did throughout her life was incredibly important for furthering conservation and protecting biodiversity. The dedication of her life to this movement and making incredible strides is commendable and inspiring.
