17-year-old climate change activist, Mia Sutherland, hails from Christchurch. Mia is a leader of 'School Strike 4 Climate New Zealand' and was the guest editor for Stuff in May this year to bring greater awareness to the climate emergency.
"My mission is to ensure that I will have a safe future free from the disastrous consequences of climate change. To do this I try to educate and assist individuals in their transition to a sustainable lifestyle and put pressure on governments and corporations to make changes to their practices," says Mia.
Along with this, Mia enjoys writing poetry, singing, cooking and walking her family's dogs.
