Conservationist of the Year 2014
Despite being just 31, Anna has been leading the debate on climate for a more than a decade. And her 30s haven’t slowed her – this year she spearheaded Earth Hour Australia’s evolution from a single event to a year-round social movement with a focus on protecting the Great Barrier Reef from climate change and coastal development.
Among her many achievements, Anna co-founded the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, now one of Australia’s largest youth organisations. She also made headlines in 2012 when she journeyed around the world with former Liberal senator Nick Minchin, to encourage him to accept climate science for the ABC documentary I Can Change Your Mind About Climate. She later wrote a popular book on the experience.
