Emma Askew is a 22 year-old environmental researcher and film-maker. She is the founder of the environmental platform 'Earth Minutes', and the producer of the recent short film, 'Breakwater'.
After studying Geography (BSc) at Durham University, Emma works full-time as an Environmental Consultant, specialising in soil science. She volunteers as a South West Rep for Surfers Against Sewage, and as an Eco Learning and Education Advisor for Proud to be Green.
