Munur has studied both at UCL’s Bartlett School of Planning, and Brunel University London – holding a BSc in International Politics. He is currently interning for the United Kingdom’s Environment Agency as a Sustainable Design Advisor – working with local authorities, property developers, and architects to help them improve their planning applications. He also has past experience interning for management consultancy firms in London’s financial sector, and NGO’s such as Forum for the Future – a leading global sustainability non-profit tackling complex sustainability challenges. Munur plans to pursue a master’s in urban planning from Harvard’s graduate school of Design.
He is interested in city planning, and how well-thought urban design can positively influence the human psyche, and provide a gateway to global peace, stability, and sustainable development. Munur first discovered the Seasteading institute while researching for his dissertation on the development of future resilient cities and became intrigued by the positive potential of special regulatory frameworks both for cities, and the environment. Outside of work he is involved in martial arts – holding a 1st Dan black belt in Taekwondo, and enjoys painting, sketching, and reading, and travelling.
