I’m Fayaz Anwar, a theoretical physics graduate from Manchester in the UK. Once I graduated I moved to Dubai to teach but got involved with a variety of environmental projects and initiatives on the side. I am 1 of 20 nature ambassadors for a program called Connect with Nature (partners with Emirates WWF) and am 1 of 4 delegates for the Mock COP26 event where the youth direct a high level statement at the global leaders to enact change. From participating in conservation census’ in the field such as the Kingfisher survey to writing a plan report for a solar desalination plant in the UAE, I hope my career goes in this general direction. Aside from the conservation efforts I control the social media account of a charity here in Dubai. I want to leave the planet in a better place for the next generation.
