Mia NixonYouth Council Member
A junior in the Global Scholars program at Greenwich Academy, Mia Nixon is committed to global sustainability, environmental education, youth leadership and making positive changes in her community. She has studied and worked in sustainable development and marine conservation over the past several years in the Bahamas, the Naragansett Bay and along the coast of the Long Island Sound. Mia’s participation in Project Green Challenge 2015 - a 30-day competition based on environmentally sustainable and socially responsible choices -- inspired her to become more deeply engaged in her generation's movement to sustain a healthy, just and thriving planet. She is particularly interested in ocean conservation. She feels that EarthEcho International, with its emphasis on youth education and service-learning toward identifying and solving local environmental challenges, is an amazing platform for inspiring youth to collaborate and take action to protect our world's natural resources. Mia is excited to be a part of EarthEcho's inaugural Youth Leadership Council!
