But I like being outdoors, I think the environment is such an important part of our future, especially for young people. The school strike for climate change was pretty cool, I guess it does make a big difference when all the kids in NZ kind of stop and go, โ€œhey.โ€ Joining the Youth Advisory Group (YAG) is my way to take action and do something about climate change.. YAG has opened my mind up to society and systems, which is really cool because as a kid you donโ€™t get taught a lot about that and it just makes your perspective that little bit wider about how things actually work.โ€

Want to join Lucia and make a difference, or know someone who could? Applications to join the Youth Advisory Group close on Sunday 14 Feb.
