Congratulations to the 2011 Environment Minister's Young Environmentalist of the Year Winner, Lindsay Souter  who quit her job in 2010 to establish a national campaign on renewable energy – 100% Renewable.

The campaign is a national, grassroots movement encourage small, local groups to work towards a future where 100% renewable energy is used.

The group uses a model of regional organisers as well as co-ordinating on policy goals, mentoring programs, media liaison and door knocking local areas to raise awareness of the group’s aims.

Judges said, “Lindsay showed great courage in quitting her job and pursuing the 100% Renewable Community Campaign on her own with no guarantees. Through good community engagement, an inspiring commitment to her beliefs, aligned with a strong methodical approach and a very good strategy, Lindsay was able to tackle a significant issue and mobilise a grassroots movement effectively. Judges were impressed by the campaign's ability to connect communities from all around Australia together for greater influence, consultation and important dialogue. The reach of this program is outstanding."
