Caroline Heege, co-president of Climate Action Youth, has been an effective climate advocate for much of her life and was recently featured in Seattle’s Child and Newsweek as she prepared for the global climate strike on September 20th. A graduate of the Plant for the Planet Washington Climate Justice Ambassador Academy, she has led many programs along the way.

She stepped into a leadership role this year both in CAY, and in Fridays for Future, which strikes at Seattle City Hall every Friday. She played a significant role in the planning of the Seattle event for the Global Climate Strike.

Caroline also enjoys singing and her father runs the Plant for the Planet music team. They are a true Climate Action Family.

We expect Caroline will be one of the young people at the forefront of change, and we are delighted to know her.
