James joined the AYCC after he attended a summer school on the economics of climate change at Oxford University. This experience was both inspiring and galvanising; the need to act urgently on climate change prompted him to look for ways to volunteer. He is close to finishing his Bachelor of Science at Melbourne University, where he's blended some arts with a lot of chemistry and maths. Away from AYCC and study, James loves teaching, travelling and going to concerts. You can usually find him at your local cafe for brunch.
