Bella Garrioch is an environmental studies student at Macalester College in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Within her major she emphasizes climate science and policy and is interested in the crossover between climate change research and political solutions to the climate crisis. Born in Philadelphia to two Scottish parents, she frequently travels between her two countries of citizenship, the US and UK, and is deeply connected to the natural environments of both. Bella is a trained Climate Reality leader, has worked and volunteered with Minnesota-based climate advocacy non-profit MN350, and plans on pursuing a career in the field of climate/environmental science.
I’m optimistic about the future of international climate governance and COP26 will be a critical part of our advancement into a sustainable world for all.
