BENEFITING: SustainUs Inc
I have experience teaching climate modeling and speaking publicly at schools, religious institutions, and events on positive ways that we can confront the climate crisis. I have organized 700 mile bike rides, where I spoke with conservative and independent people living in rural and small town Minnesota about how to promote energy efficiency and clean energy. I have also experience extreme weather, having survived a tornado that lifted up my family's car when I was 14, and have an innate appreciation for the vast power that natural forces can possess.
I was also a member of Expedition Copenhagen last fall, a Midwest delegation to the COP15 Climate summit, consisting of twelve youth, and led by polar explorer Will Steger.
Please help make this journey a reality; I am having a lot of trouble with fundraising because the conference is in Cancun, and many people think that they will be funding a vacation. This is not the case though, for if it is anything like last year, I am preparing myself to work 20 hours a day for two weeks to work to get the strong, legally binding climate treaty that the world deserves.
