Conservationist, climate change campaigner and traveller
Suzanne is currently a climate change campaigner at the Australian Conservation Foundation. Her childhood was spent in Hawaii, close to nature and often in the ocean. She has an International Affairs degree from Lewis and Clark College in Oregon and a Masters of Public Administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.
Heatwaves receive less media and public attention than other extreme events such as flood and fire, but they kill more people than any other natural disaster and cause significant damage to ecosystems, agriculture and infrastructure.
The movement for change is growing by the day and it is broad, committed, inclusive and powerful. All over the world political leaders are being held to account for irresponsible climate policies by a growing community of people who want to see swift decisive action on climate change.
