AUSTRALIA, July 27, 2010: Frank Sartor, Minister for Climate Change and the Environment, announced Deepa Gupta as the youngest ever recipient of the Green Globe Individual Sustainability Champion Award at last night’s 2010 ceremony at NSW Parliament House. “At only 26, Deepa is co-founder of the Indian Youth Climate Network,” Mr Sartor said.

The Green Globe Awards have been running for 11 years. To win a Green Globe, you must demonstrate extraordinary environmental achievement.

Ms. Gupta’s work to engage young people on climate change action is having wide- reaching impacts both here and overseas. Her work in the Indian Youth Climate Network has involved her training and speaking to more than 100,000 young people about climate change over the past year. She has worked on many projects including the Climate Solutions Road Tour, the Global South Youth to COP15 project and the Global Day of Fasting for Climate Justice.
