Grace Chin has a commitment to climate activism that stems from a deep concern about the destructive effects of global climate change and the realization that there is a more sustainable way of living. As a fellow with the Alliance for Climate Education, she advocated for divestment from the fossil fuel industry, gathered petition signatures, met with state legislators, and spoke at events. As a co-president of her high school’s environmental club, she has worked on increasing environmental awareness among students and on reducing the school’s carbon footprint — specifically reducing the use of bottled water and energy consumption through school-wide campaigns, the installation of several water bottle filling stations, and collaboration with Next Step Living, a Boston-based home energy efficiency company.
