Magnusson Award

Beneficiary_Morgan_LongMorgan’s Magnusson Award gave her the ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ to travel to Vanuatu in the Pacific Ocean. There she had the chance to meet women on the front lines of climate change, fighting the harsh impacts by empowering themselves and becoming entrepreneurs. Morgan was moved by how joyful and kind these women were despite the Despite the hardship they faced on a daily basis.

She met women like Naomi (pictured) who has worked to transform her own community teaching handicraft skills to enable others to create their own businesses.

Her experience in Vanuatu has taught Morgan the importance of investing in your own community in order to plant the seeds of change.

It was incredible and yet, incredibly eye opening. I was constantly struck by the inequalities I was witnessing, such disparity that most of us will only ever read about. This experience has made me more aware and more understanding of just what I am fighting for and dedicating my career to.
