EngSci student Sam Harrison (Year 3 Energy Systems) is heading to the United Nations’ COP22 climate change conference in Morocco as one of the 17 young people serving on the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition.

As an energy systems student who has a long history of climate change advocacy, he’s especially well equipped for the job of lobbying stakeholders and holding politicians accountable for their promises at the conference.
