James Hutt has been involved with the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, doing some amazing work domestically and internationally. His nominator believes that his commitment to building a just and sustainable future is what sets him apart from other people in his field.
In addition to his dedication toward environmental issues, Hutt has been working hard to educate and empower youth on related sub-topics. In the summer of 2011, Hutt coordinated Power Summer Quebec, a gathering which trained youth leaders from all across Quebec and eastern Ontario to advocate on behalf of climate change solutions.
As a Youth Delegate to COP17 for the Canadian Youth Delegation, Hutt collaborated with politicians and youth from around the globe at the UN conference in order to raise awareness and inspire action on climate change. He also gained much experience with publishing articles, op-eds, blogs, and policy updates. All of this hard work helped to inform and engage Canadians about decisions on International climate agreements.
His nominator considers him among the most dedicated and driven young environmental activists that he has had the privilege of working with. James is dedicated to building solutions to climate change at home and with youth around the globe. Along with this, Hutt plunged into a meaningful measure that advocated for reduced water consumption; in 2010, he challenged himself to using no more than 25 litres of water per day for 30 days! This passion for raising awareness around the importance of water conservation makes Hutt a great example of the power that young people have within today’s world!
