I’d like to congratulate Brittany Trilford, who is off the Rio +20 Earth Summit in Brazil after winning the Date With History contest.
She won it after posting this amazing short video – The future I want:
It was a pleasure to meet her this week along with Kennedy Graham and Holly Walker. We talked about how Brittany, now gets the opportunity to address the Earth Summit and speak to leaders and officials about the environment. It’s a huge opportunity, but I also imagine a bit daunting for this 17 year old Wellingtonian. I’m sure she’ll give a wonderful speech and does us all proud to see a Kiwi addressing the summit. We congratulate her and wish her all the best for her big speech in Rio. The only shame is John Key won’t be at Rio +20, which shows his priorities.
