Hello, my name is Bella Burgemeister.
I'm 14 and I come from Bunbury, Western Australia.
I am a young author, environmental presenter and climate activist. I am author and presenter of my book “Bella’s Challenge”. Bella’s Challenge is a Kids’ take on the 17 UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development and outlines the goals in kids’ speak and sets out simple challenge’s kids can do to help their communities and the planet.
I have presented my book to students and adults around Australia. All proceeds from the book sales have gone back into sustainable development projects like the Homeless lockers in Bunbury project.
I am a student organiser for the School Strike 4 Climate project and have been involved in preparing many actions and online events.
I sit on several boards and committees ensuring youth have a voice in decisions being made for their futures including as Ambassador for Little Citizen for Climate.
The time to act on climate change is now. We need to stand up and speak out to let our Political leaders know they have a duty of care to look after our futures and future generations and to stop putting profits before people. We take action to show others that one person can make positive changes that can ripple around the world. Join us!
