Water Advocate Autumn Peltier
We sat down with 13-year-old Autumn Peltier, who is making international waves for her efforts to protect the world’s water. From her first global speech in 2015 at the Children’s Climate Conference in Sweden, to her address at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, Autumn is unstoppable. The only Canadian who has been nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize, Autumn is raising awareness and calling the world to action, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau—whom she firmly told when they met, “I’m very unhappy with the choices you’ve made.”
