SustainUS is an organization I hold close to my heart. SustainUS is an organization that empowers young people to become well-versed advocates for sustainability through the international arena, a network that connects young Americans around issues that matter most, and a launching pad for careers in development, sustainability, clean energy, and international relations. I owe so much to SustainUS, which opened my eyes to the possibilities in international development, education, and advocacy.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the development of the youth climate movement here in the United States. SustainUS has consistently involved peer to peer education as part of its mission, teaching young leaders about international environmental policy negotiations and sustainable development solutions.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
create reliable funding streams to ensure the organization's work can continue and expand to reach even more young people.
