I was a student leader with SustainUS at Cop 13 in Bali. SustainUS helped me to connect to countless leaders in the field and work together to achieve great things! I would work with them again and they deserve everyone's support!

SustainUS is a fantastic organization - the best I have worked with in the environmental and international political fields. The fact that is in all volunteer run makes for an amazingly robust and cooperative organization. A fantastic model that more non-profits should follow.

SustainUS gives youth the opportunity and a platform, such as UN Conferences, to become engaged with local, national, and international social issues. The organization is led by a team of volunteers that are full-time professionals, students, etc who devote their time to make this organization operational. Their level of community action and their presence in the youth activism movement is quite impressive.

SustainUS is an incredibly successful grassroots organization which facilitates amazing opportunities. I was able to attend the UN climate talks in Mexico through SustainUS and had the tools and knowledge to not only get information from the conference, but I was also able to participate in a meaningful way.

SustainUS is a great organization that has allowed me to connect with amazing young people throughout the US and the world working on sustainability issues. It's augmented my work in my undergrad program and given me experience and perspective on international sustainability issues that I couldn't have gained elsewhere.

SustainUS allowed me to participate in international negotiations and ultimately led me to a career in sustainable community building. It felt very empowering to build a collective voice among international youth and speak our truth to delegates and stakeholders from around the world.
