Brianna Fruean

Brianna is a 22-year-old Samoan Climate Activist who has been leading community grassroots projects for most of her life. At 11, she became a founding member of 350 Samoa. At 16, she became the youngest winner of the Commonwealth Youth Award for her environmental activism. She was chosen by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environmental Programme as their first-ever youth ambassador in recognition of her efforts to include young people in the environmental conservation space. Today she is a proud Pacific Climate Warrior fighting for the survival of her islands.

A quote on the subject:

“My vision for the future is that my islands will be around for centuries and generations to come. The only way that can be possible is if we put an end to the fossil fuel era and transition to renewables now! I hope that all the conversations had about the global energy transition are bold and firm in the commitment towards a just transition.”
