It has been a big year for 18-year-old climate activist Ashjayeen Sharif. Not only did he start university, he made international news with his attempt to join the board of AGL: the country’s largest electricity generator that Greenpeace infamously labelled “Australia’s biggest polluter”.
The move might seem surprising, but there was method to his madness. Sharif joined a long line of corporate activists working to change corporations from within, demonstrating that clean climate policy isn’t just good for the planet, it’s good for business.
Lucky for us he found some time in his busy schedule to make RIISE a special mix to “fight big corp to”. You know, in case you were feeling inspired.
