Dev Joshi, a winner of the National Liberty Museum’s TD Bank Young Heroes Award, selected from among a large group of national nominations.
17 year old Dev Joshi, an Atlanta resident, founded the nonprofit The Carbon-12 Project, dedicated to educating about the impact of climate change to his peers can be empowered to make environmental changes in their communities.  Through in-person outreach events at local festivals, farmer’s markets, libraries and schools, Dev provides practical lifestyle tips to help individuals reduce their carbon footprint such as reducing waste, using renewable energy, purchasing low carbon goods, and consuming less meat.  Unlike most outreach events, individuals are encouraged not only to make personal changes but also to advocate for systemic change.  Using online resources, Dev has also fundraised to support The Children’s Eternal Rainforest’s tree nursey in Costa Rica, an organization that counter’s the environmental issue of deforestation.  Looking to expand The Carbon-12 Project to create a generation of educated climate changemakers, Dev is currently developing free online curriculum, which would allow interested youth to spread awareness and make environmental education more accessible.
