The Sustainable Development Goals Summit Series held the first of three online hui in November. The event, See the Change, was a success in attracting over 120 attendees, 87 of which signed up to be post-event Virtual Coffee Buddies. These catch-ups allow participants to reconnect and continue learning from one another.
One of the key speakers at the event was Lucy Gray, a Christchurch student, climate activist, and member of Schools Strike 4 Climate NZ and Schools Strike 4 Climate Christchurch. Back in October, Stuff featured an article about Lucy who started organising climate protests when she was twelve years old.
