Ma & Morley Scholar Georgina Thompson

Greta, Hunter NSW
Bachelor of Environmental Science & Management
Scholarship Category: Educational Disadvantage

Georgina believes that living sustainably should be accessible to all. As an Environmental Science and Management student concerned with the connection between poverty, health and environmental health she hopes to develop and implement practical, affordable solutions to fostering mutually beneficial relationships between nature and those most disproportionately affected by global issues such as pollution, degradation and climate change. So far, her journey with the Ma & Morley scholarship program has allowed her to forge relationships with Polynesian and Asian communities while continuing local volunteer work in order to contribute to a safer, more equitable world.
