Winner as Contestant's Statement: I joined MEA because fighting for the conservation and protection of our planet is the most significant battle we must overcome. I've always been an advocate for the environment, but this has been further intensified by my university studies (I'm undertaking a double degree of Global Sustainability and Politics). MEA provides an excellent platform to amplify our voices and action as we protect mother earth.

“Staying up to date with the ever-evolving issue that is climate change is one of my biggest pastimes. This year alone I’ve read over 50 articles and books on topics such as coal, environmental government reports, and the social impacts of climate change. With climate impacts being so far-reaching and widespread there is always something new to learn.

Part of my advocacy for Miss Earth is ‘Education’, and this is something that I firmly stand behind. We can’t act on something that we don’t understand. Ecosystems are like a spider’s web, if you bump one of the strands then it will vibrate onto all those surrounding it. When we do take action, we have to make sure those vibrations are doing more good than harm.

Furthermore, by being educated on the subject you are able to reach more people who might be on the fence on the climate issue. Or even those who believe it’s a hoax. By having cold, hard scientific facts behind you, and a deeper understanding of the bigger picture, you are able to stand your ground and influence those who haven’t had the opportunity to learn about the effects of climate change.

If you’re just starting to learn more about climate change, here are my top 5 recommendations:

1. “Artic Ocean 2020” article by Artic News [2020]

2.“Climate Emergency: world ‘may have crossed tipping points’” by Damian Carrington [the Guardian]

3. “Seriously Ugly: Here’s how Australia will look if the world heats by 3C this Century” by Ove Hoegh-Guldberg and Lesley Hughes [the Consersation]

4. “The Coal Curse – Resources, Climate and Australia’s Future” by Judith Brett

5.“Fossil Networks and Dirty Power: The Politics of Decarbonisation in Australia” by Adam Lucas
