Injy Johnstone

Injy has been a passionate advocate for sustainability education, policy and projects through both the Enviroschools programme and the New Zealand Association for Environmental Education. This led to attending the Sir Peter Blake Youth Enviro-Leaders Forum in 2012, after which she represented New Zealand youth at the United Nations Rio+20 Conference. Since then she has led delegations to further international policy conferences pushing for sustainable development and climate change mitigation policies. Injy is currently a committee member of Sustainable Dunedin City, enjoys participating in local environmental projects and manages the day to day operations of the Foster Child Support Network-New Zealand which she founded in 2015.

Injy is currently studying towards a Bachelor of Applied Science in Environmental Management and Economics and a Bachelor of Laws at the University of Otago and a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy and Development Studies at Massey University. Overall Injy aspires to bridge the gap between science, policy and the community in order to promote sustainable development and help solve the developmental challenges of the 21st century.
