About:

A recent graduate of the MA/MSc Innovation Design Engineering double masters program at the Royal College of Art & Imperial College London, Ryan McClure is a multidisciplinary design engineer specialising in Mechatronics, Systems Design & Environmental Activism. He aims to foster new ways of tackling complex environmental problems through the convergence of emerging technologies, science, and radical community-led projects generating & celebrating a newfound relationship with the natural world around us. Ryan is currently obsessed with water and co-founded the 'Wateraware Collective' which seeks to expand existing ideas and idealogies from his creation of 'Eco-Hobbyvism'. The Pale Blue Dot, will always be - my constant thought.

Eco-Hobbyvism is an exciting and new radical approach for tackling water pollution which allows anyone to passively engage in collecting vital environmental data for waterways whilst doing their favorite water-based hobby. An intelligent tow float dry bag called Neaho records and distributes open-source water quality data alerting communities as it is pulled along bridging the gaps between concerned citizens, hobbyists, scientists, and grassroots activism. By connecting many different groups of people through doing something they love, environmental problems can be collectively tackled more inclusively helping to form new diverse networks and drive meaningful change.
