She also works with Make Poverty History and youth climate coalitions within and outside of Australia. Outside of the environment space, Linh co-founded OurSay to promote democratic engagement.

Linh is also completing a Bachelor of Arts (International Politics and Environmental Studies) at the University of Melbourne. About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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)
