|Adrian engaging in Art as Activism|
My name is Adrian Nuñez. I recently attended the Bioneers conference due to the courtesy of a youth scholarship. I wish to personally thank Bioneers for giving us this wonderful opportunity to expand our knowledge to ensure a green future for my generation and the generations to come. Being native hispanic youth not really knowing my roots, it was very inspiring to learn about my culture and learn the ways that we forget to love the earth the way our ancestors practiced. I cannot be more thankful for those who attended the conference and interacted with me showing me the ways of my native blood. Going to the conference and listening to the speakers has inspired me to do three things: change the system of my schools policies, make my school more green and more earth friendly, and bring back the culture to my community. As a youth activist fighting for LGBT rights and food and water rights, being in that space made me want to fight even more for a better future..."
