As a middle school student in New Haven (CT), Adrian Huq already cared deeply about the environment and would go out of their way to improve recycling efforts and reduce food waste at school. In high school, Adrian had the opportunity to engage with their school community about environmental issues and started organizing youth-led climate strikes and other initiatives, which led them to co-found the ‘New Haven Climate Movement’ Youth Action Team and coordinate the youth internship at the ‘Climate Health Education Project’. Based on solid scientific evidence about the impact of human actions on global climate, Adrian’s activism creates awareness of these issues and pressures local communities and policymakers to advance plans for broad climate education across the city and potential solutions to mitigate human impacts. Adrian inspires other young students to take action and is definitely helping New Haven move in the environmentally right direction!
