We are very pleased to announce Millie Anthony, The Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) NSW State Coordinator, will be speaking at our next Sustainability Drinks Sydney event held, as always, on the second Wednesday of the month: 6-8pm Wednesday 10th September.

Millie has been volunteering as NSW State Coordinator for the last 9 months. She came to the role from campaigning positions at UNICEF and advocacy roles for an organisation which advocates on behalf of Pacific Islanders, particularly in low-lying island states, who are being severely impacted by climate change. Millie believes in the power of young people as leaders to build a movement to solve climate change.
