Forging a new norm(al)

To work towards quality education and advocate for climate solutions, I will volunteer my time with the Monash Move it For Good Campaign and I will continue my climate change advocacy work with two climate NGO's. I will expand this work into my daily life, by submitting articles to a student-led newspaper about the intersection of climate change, human security and an environmentally informed public. My aim is to advocate for the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to climate change, education and sustainability. To ensure an equitable future, we need to harness the capabilities of economists, social researchers, physicists, diplomats and rights advocates. Small scale thinking applied to trans-national and trans-disciplinary crises such as climate change and quality education will not be sufficient. We need to think local in order to shift the global.
