SustainUS is an incredible organization that empowers youth to be involved on the international stage, advocating for action on climate change. They promote education and bring a knowledgeable team of youth to the UN Climate Negotiations. They are known , even in the US government, as being educated on par with high level NGO representatives and other government observers. They give US youth a voice in the international policy making arena.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
My work as a youth advocate and college tudent, and also afterwards in my work at the US State Department
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase its capacity to fund students who cannot fund themselves, and promote its services to a wider base of youth.
Volunteer & I participated in 2 youth delegations with them.
