Phoebe first got involved in the AYCC through attending Powershift in 2013, then volunteering on the Safe Climate Roadmap and Don’t Risk the Reef campaigns. At the time she was also completing her Master of Environment degree, looking at the relationships between humans and the natural world. She found that volunteering offered a fantastic practical outlet to complement her theoretical degree. She took a break from the AYCC to study abroad at Uppsala University in Sweden, but always intended to come back to the organisation after completing study in 2015. When not busy with AYCC work she enjoys reading novels, making photo albums, cooking, running, and exploring Melbourne and its surrounds.
