Environmental warrior Arron Wood is convinced that through committed and united action we can overcome the environmental issues that we now face. Arron's story will take you from his local billabong to the United Nations.
This is Arron's story, from a boy who loved to explore his local billabong to international award-winning speaker, and his struggles to keep balanced while being an inspiration to those around him. As winner of the 2006 United Nations Individual Award for Outstanding Service to the Environment and the 2007 Prime Minister's Environmentalist of the Year Award, Arron believes that young people are an integral part of the debate. Working closely with his father, Richard, through their Kids Teaching Kids programme, he is passionate about creating a community of learners - a community that inspires young people and gives them the skills to be the leaders of tomorrow.
