Review for SustainUS, Inc., Quincy, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an Australian Youth Delegate, I engaged with youth from SustainUS at the UN Climate Conference in Indonesia in 2007. I was overwhelmed and utterly inspired by their professionalism, optimism and extraordinary work ethic. These young people are not simply aware of the problem, they are proactively and passionately making the world a better place, every day. My full support lies behind all of their endeavours as it's my firm belief that if they continue to do what they're doing, the world will thank them forever.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A number of events, documents, media stories and actions driven by both SustainUS and other youth organisations. In particular, I worked closely with SustainUS youth creating positive adn thought provoking media actions throughout the conference. Our events achieved international media coverage, including going on the cover of the Guardian Weekly.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure that they are working proactively to campaign for 100% renewable energy implementation, without any transitional steps such as gas, which is not sustainable and will only establish infrastructure that will delay the implementation of renewables. Celebrate their successes as often as possible in order to inspire new momentum.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I worked with youth from SustainUS at the UN climate talks in Bali, Indonesia in 2007 as a fellow youth delegate.
