Emma Must (born 1966) is an English environmental activist, teacher, and poet[1][2]who previously worked as a librarian.

She was awarded the Goldman Environmental Prize in 1995[3] for her efforts on land protection, particularly her influence on British road building policies through her road protest against the M3 motorway extension at Twyford Down.[4]

Must went on to work with Alarm UK!,[3] (an umbrella group for the nationwide road building protest), Transport 2000[3] (later renamed Campaign for Better Transport) and World Development Movement.[3]
