Emily is announced as Highly Commended in the Inspirational Person Category
at the Flood and Coast Excellence Awards Dinner, June 2022

I am honoured to share the news that I have been Highly Commended in the Inspirational Person Category at the UK’s national Flood and Coast Excellence Awards 2022.

I have been recognised for my work leading a national membership group of 57 councils (covering 60% of England’s coast and 16 million people), for championing coastal adaptation and climate resilience – including nature-positive policy and practice – and for founding and fostering collaborations to deliver a brighter future for England’s coast and its communities.

A big thank you to the excellent Chair of the LGA Coastal SIG, Cllr Ernest Gibson, my amazing boss Laura Turvey for her mentorship and support, my brilliant team Beccy MacDonald-Lofts and Bethany Handson and all the Councillors, council officers and partner organisations I have had the pleasure of working with and learning from over the past 2 and a half years.

My time leading this group has come to an end as I’m starting a new professional adventure, but this recognition was the perfect way to close a significant chapter in my life.
