GreenMatch Sustainability Scholarship - Winner for 2019

GreenMatch thanks all the applicants for their participation in the sustainability scholarship. We received plenty of applications with extraordinary stories, which made it quite difficult to choose one winner.

The winner for the GreenMatch Sustainability Scholarship 2019 is Rosie Green. 

Rosie has taken significant actions to make her student life more sustainable, and furthermore, is the 2020 campaign officer of Auckland University Student Association, where she leads and coordinates campaigns initiatives, with a strong focus on politics and sustainability.

In addition, she is also the president of the Sustainable Future Collective, the largest environmental group at her university. This association is collaborating with many eco-friendly clubs to bring together a community of like-minded people. 

"My goal as president this year was to really nurture that sense of community. Being an eco-activist can be depressing at times, so I wanted to ensure there was a group to support each other and make everyone feel less alone or defeated in this fight against climate change." - Rosie Green GreenMatch congratulates the winner and wishes the best in her future endeavours.
