SustainUS gives youth a voice for their future like no other organization. I have been a member of SustainUS since 2002 and a leader in the organization since 2007. I am proud to now serve on SustainUS's Board of Director. SustainUS empowers young people to advance sustainable development in a nonpartisan and inclusive process that brings in young scientists, policy makers, social and environmental justice advocates, business students, and youth from other countries working or studying in the U.S.A. It's role in helping to build youth power, especially at international negotiations, is impressive.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Seeing them help to lead the creation of the youth constituency (www.youthclimate.org) at the UN climate negotiations, among many other examples.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Convince more funders of the opportunity they are missing by not supporting SustainUS's work.
Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?
How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
