Juan Hoffmaister

Juan Hoffmaister works for SustainUS-a United States network of youth for sustainable development-and for the United Nations Environment Programme, serving as its North American representative on the Tunza Youth Advisory Council. He is devoted to improve global climate policy, with a focus on water and adaptation.

Youth and children, as the next generations, have the right to a clean future-they do not wish to inherit a toxic, radioactive, dirty and carbon-driven world. We demand a clear definition of sustainable energy and time-bound targets for the implementation of a sustainable energy policy that will free us from respiratory ailments, air pollution, climate change and a radioactive legacy.
