Grace Vegesana (she/her)

board of directors

Grace Vegesana (she/they) is a 23 year old woman-of-colour fighting for climate, economic & racial justice on stolen Dharug, Gundungurra and Tharawal land across Western Sydney, Australia. She is pioneering an intersectional portfolio as the Climate & Racial Justice Director for the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC). She sits on the Boards of the Foundation for Young Australians, the Australian Conservation Foundation and Sweltering Cities.

She believes in a better, brighter, and more climate-resilient world for young people to inherit and thrive in, and works to bring those dreams into reality through supporting young people in culturally, linguistically, and religiously diverse and climate-affected communities in Australia to forge generation-wide solutions to intersecting crises at a systemic level.
