Next Gen Heroes
Emily Hunter is the daughter of late Greenpeace co-founder Robert Hunter and fellow activist Bobbi Hunter.

Soon after graduating from high school, Emily became an activist herself when she witnessed appalling environmental and humanitarian conditions on a trip to China.

This young GreenHero is well-informed on a wide range of issues from pollution to endangered habitats and species protection.

She has participated in anti-whaling campaigns, oil-spill cleanups and projects opposing Alberta’s tar sands, the latter of which she calls: “our biggest environment crime on the planet – our scar on the world”.

With her impressive list of credentials, Emily strives to make people aware of the consequences of consumption and everyday actions through television and videos, print media and web-based publications.

Her latest project is a book entitled The Next Eco-Warriors, which tells the stories of this new generation of GreenHeroes.
