Lauren "Piper" C.
Piper Christian plans to graduate high school in May of 2018. She's happy to be a part of the NYLC for her second year. She is leading her Roots & Shoots group to pass a resolution through the Utah State Legislature which substantiates the existence of human-caused climate change and suggests measures to address it. She lobbied for carbon fee legislation on Capital Hill with Citizen's Climate Lobby, and spoke at their national conference. In December of 2015, she attended the COP21 UN Climate Summit in Paris. While there, she conducted a film project on how climate change affects communities worldwide, and later shared her story through TEDx Salt Lake City. In her free time, she loves to bike, hike, and ski with family, and go camping with friends.
