DEV graduate featured in the Guardian's 'Young Climate Campaigners to Watch' list!

Youth activists and bloggers from around the world are stimulating the public debate in the lead-up to the climate summit in Paris, shadowing negotiators, co-ordinating fossil fuel divestment campaigns at universities and exploring the links between social and environmental problems. The Guardian has complied a list of people to watch in the run up to the UN's Paris Summit. DEV graduate Anna Pérez Català is featured in the list!


Anna writes on climate change and development, blogs at ClimateChange.org and co-edits the environment section of United Explanations. “Since the [economic] crisis arose in southern Europe, I have been involved in many different types of grassroots movements to fight for a better education, democracy, civil rights and a better planet. Climate change  is, to me, the culmination of this self-destructive system, and I try to show the links between the social and environmental crises,” she says.
