Emily Hunter

Engagement Manager

Emily is a second-generation activist in the environmental movement. Her parents were co-founders of Greenpeace – one of the world’s most recognized environmental groups that originated in Vancouver, Canada. Over the last 15 years, Emily has worked with some of the world’s leading advocacy groups herself, from saving whales with Sea Shepherd to organizing a national day of action on climate change with 350.org, and winning a national anti-plastics campaign with Greenpeace New Zealand/ Aotearoa. She is a graduate student with a Masters in Environmental Studies at York University, with a focus on climate change education for youth. When she is not at work, she is found speaking to youth about change-making, penning her next book or making short documentaries.
