Anisha is an environmental activist passionate about engaging communities in sustainable practices. After snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef as a child, Anisha fell in love with the underwater world and studied science in an effort to understand the impacts of climate change on the Reef. Throughout her degree, she became frustrated with the lack of good environmental policies. So she began campaigning alongside youth activists for a transition to 100% renewable energy. This led her to a role with GetUp, an independent movement working to build a more progressive Australia. Anisha is also completing her Masters of Research, looking at community attitudes towards renewable energy. She wants to use her science background and experience in communications to empower people to take action to mitigate climate change impacts.
