Amelia Fortgang

Senior Water Challenge Ambassador

Amelia Fortgang is from San Francisco, California and is an 11th grader at Lick-Wilmerding High School. This past September she led and organized the Bay Area Youth Climate Summit (@bayareaycs), bringing together over 280 high schoolers from the Bay Area and beyond to learn about climate change, discuss climate justice, and create plans to tackle these issues. She also co-leads her school’s environmental club, and she’s volunteered at the Cal Academy of Sciences and SF Zoo learning about science communication. Amelia is very passionate about climate justice and ocean conservation, and working with EarthEcho as a Water Challenge Ambassador for these past two years has inspired her to advocate for our blue planet and its people.
