ACTIVISM & ADVOCACY

Marco Bellemo

Northcote High’s 2019 school captain, Marco Bellemo feels morally obliged to use the privileges he has to live and act in a way that helps create a world where the environment and all living beings flourish and coexist sustainably.

Gaining notoriety from his appearance on Q&A last year where he called out politicians for their inaction during the climate emergency, Marco has long been active across a range of environmental groups including the AYCC, Stop Adani, Galilee blockade, Front Line Action on Coal, Forest Conservation Victoria, Extinction Rebellion and School Strike 4 Climate.

Marco was arguably the first student in Australia to campaign for his school to declare a climate emergency, and has been instrumental in making climate change and sustainability a key element of his school’s curriculum.


Marco’s

Perspective

“My generation is facing the climate emergency right now, it’s not a crisis I will face in the distant future. I think all generations should be calling for emergency-level action on climate change.”
