Annika Reynolds

Laws (Honours) / International Security Studies

ACT

I am a fifth-year undergraduate student studying Laws (Honours)/International Security Studies, minoring in Korean at Australian National University (ANU), with a GPA of 6.7.  

 I am a young leader in the Australian environmental movement, advocating for young people and marginalised communities to have a substantive role in climate justice reform. I am the Founder of GreenLaw, a young person led organisation empowering the next generation of lawyers to be involved in environmental reform in partnership with universities, NGOs and the private sector. 

 In 2020, I was also appointed a Board Director for Zero Emissions Noosa Inc, as a youth voice for the region, and as a Legal Research Consultant to the Australian Conservation Foundation. This year, I was published in two academic journals for my research on environmental matters. My co-authored article on public interest litigation under the EPBC Act was published in the EPLJ and my comparative research on climate-induced migration and intercommunal violence in the South Pacific was published in Frontier: UOW Journal of International Affairs.  

I am aspiring to be a voice of inclusivity within the climate justice movement, advocating for young and queer people to have a substantive say in the reforms we need to make Australia a sustainable and just society.
