Jamie Margolin to Deliver Keynote at Greenbuild 2019
Jamie Margolin is a 17-year-old Colombian-American writer, community organizer, activist & public speaker. She is the founder and co-executive director of an international youth climate justice movement called Zero Hour that lead the very first "Youth Climate March" in Washington DC and 25+ cities all around the world during the summer of 2018.
She is also a plaintiff on Our Children's Trusts' Youth v. Gov Washington state lawsuit, suing the state of Washington for denying her generation's constitutional rights to a livable environment by continuing to make climate change worse, and she is a climate justice organizer in her local Seattle community. Her debut book, "Youth To Power: The Ultimate Guide To Being a Young Activist”, is hitting bookstores worldwide in 2020.
Jamie's identity as a queer Jewish Latina influences her drive and passion to fight for those who are oppressed marginalized, and her love for her Pacific Northwest home and the Seattle environment fuels her drive to protect mother earth.
Dates and details of Jamie's keynote coming soon.
