georgia - our youngest young environmental achiever
I was delighted to be able to present the Ken McIntosh Young Environmental Achiever of the Year award to Dandenong Ranges local, Georgia Grimmer, as part of the Australia Day Awards.
|Georgia’s passion for the environment at such a |
young age is inspiring, our future’s looking bright
with future leaders like Georgia.
What strikes me about Georgia is her ability to inspire and involve people of all ages and backgrounds and already she demonstrates leadership skills, an inclusive approach and a desire to make a difference.
