Matteo Civillini joined Climate Home News in February 2023 as a reporter. He previously worked at BBC World News and at Irpimedia, a non-profit investigative journalism outlet in Italy. He has reported on everything from mafia money laundering to songbird smuggling for publications including National Geographic, the Observer and OCCRP. In 2021, his investigation into human rights abuses in the tomato supply chain, in partnership with CBC, won the Amnesty International Media Award. Matteo strongly believes in the power of collaborative cross-border journalism to make a difference.
At the weekend, he can most likely be found in nature. He especially enjoys orienteering, climbing and skiing. He is also known for his risottos and for buying Parmesan by the kilogram.
Megan Darby joined Climate Home in 2014 and became the editor in 2021. She is on maternity leave until September 2023. In her reporting career, Megan rocked the boat at UN shipping talks, told the inside story of the “lionesses” behind net zero and explored what climate migration looks like in Bangladesh. Her previous job at Utility Week taught her the difference between energy and electricity. Now her role is to make space for quality climate journalism to flourish. If all goes to target, she will reach retirement age in a net zero emissions society – but as a journalist, she doesn’t take that on trust.
When she is not editing, Megan enjoys singing, crosswords and discovering the world anew with the next generation.
