Melissa Peppin, SDSN Youth

The SDSN is at COP21 to support the climate action agenda and the sustainable development goals. They have just launched a new campaign the SDSN youth arts initiative to educate the world about the sustainable development goals. Melissa comments on the state of civil society in Australia and tells Climate Home that youth organisations are thriving and that student activism is very strong. Finally she highlights the need for local governments, cities and states to play a leading role in climate action.
