The Talk is Presented By

Ko Sophie tōku ingoa, no Paekākāriki ahau. Sophie grew up in the small village of Paekākāriki, just one hour north of Wellington, and still live there now with her whānau and amongst the coolest little community. In 2019, she coordinated the nationwide School Strike 4 Climate NZ movement, which gathered over 170,000 people across the nation standing up for climate justice. She is a Councillor on the Kāpiti Coast District Council and she is just trying to use her voice for the people and planet with every chance she gets.
