Samirah Siddiqui

GEN Programme Coordinator

Samirah Siddiqui joined the GDF team as Programme Coordinator for the Global Environments Network. She works on programme development and implementation, and supports GEN with community building and engagement to nourish productive collaborations amongst GEN members.

Samirah is a conservation biologist, focusing on marine and coastal habitats. Her experience working within human rights, environmental, and social impact organisations, training in life sciences, and experience with art and activism have positioned her focus at the intersection of ecology, social sciences, and art. Her interdisciplinary and anti-colonial perspective is at the centre of her work, which seeks to disrupt silos between art, activism, and academia. 

Samirah is the Managing Editor for Project Myopia, an online magazine dedicated to decolonising university curricula by crowdsourcing diverse material from students.
