Anna Rose, environmental activist and co-founder of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition, goes on a journey around the world with former Liberal Party powerbroker Nick Minchin in tow. She's on a mission: to see if she can change the mind of one sceptic, and with him, the views of a nation confused about the science behind the biggest threat humanity has ever faced. Anna's journey with Nick forces them both to confront closely held assumptions, think deeply about complex science, and ultimately ask what our responsibilities are as humans alive in uncertain times acting on substantial but incomplete scientific knowledge.
Anna Rose is co-founder and Chair of the Australian Youth Climate Coalition and a former Environment Minister's joint Young Environmentalist of the Year. She co-authored the book Future by Us, is a Fellow of the International Youth Foundation and was named by the Sydney Morning Herald as one of Sydney's 100 Most Influential People. She now works with consultancy agency Make Believe, helping Australia's major not-for-profits with strategy and communications work.
