I can't describe how lucky I feel every day to live here beside nature. I can't imagine not having some sort of natural area in my backyard.

It's great for the soul but there's also obviously science to it — we need fresh air, we need animals, and everything else that goes along with having access to nature.

In the last seven years, since I’ve been running kayaking tours, giant kelp has disappeared from the Tasman Peninsula ... we used to see that kelp on the surface. And now it’s totally gone.

After the last election, I was disappointed the climate did not factor in the results as much as I’d hoped. It is time to do more. It's important for the next generation to have access to nature, to recharge, to breathe, to relax, to get away.

"Climate action to me is everyone working together to do everything they can to decrease emissions including governments, business and individuals."

When we work together, we are part of a community that is making a difference.

I believe enough voices and actions will force governments and businesses into climate action. I would love to see a country and communities that embrace the positive changes that come with decreasing emissions, including less consumerism, less waste and more time to enjoy life.

Let’s take more time to enjoy nature, ride and walk to work, read on the electric bus and eat healthier from local produce.
