Brittany won a Date with History

15 June 2012

A BIG CONGRATULATIONS to current AYV member Brittany Trilford, from the Wellington City Youth Council, for winning the global “Date With History” youth video speech contest.

She will be flying to the United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development (the Earth Summit) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Brittany will attend the Rio+20 conference along with young people from all around the world including New Zealand.

Young people from all around the world sent videos of their views on sustainability and the future to world leaders! It truly shows that no matter who you are and where you come from, even in the little windy capital of ours, you have the voice to make a difference!
