TEDxSTJOHNS - Meghan McCarthy - A Strong Voice for a Brighter Future

Meghan is a social and environmental justice organizer, educator, and writer. With a few years of organizing anti-poverty and sustainability campaigns under her belt, Meghan became active in the climate movement in 2009, as one of the founders of the NL Climate Action Coalition. Starting first with Oxfam Canada's Women's Rights and Climate Change Campaign, she has become deeply passionate about how climate change disproportionally impacts marginalized communities; both in Canada and in the Global South. Besides that, she has been a climate change educator for youth, a member of the University Senate, the Executive Director of Campaigns for the MUN Students' Union, and a member of the Canadian Youth Delegation to the UN climate negotiations, among other things. She now works primarily with the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, both locally and nationally, advocating for fair solutions to the climate crisis.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
