Aliza Ayaz (pronounced [Aliːzaː Aeyːyaz]; born 14 June) is a London-based student who is best known for being an international youth climate activist for which she received numerous accolades including the United Kingdom Youth Outstanding Commitment to Sustainability Award. She is a member of the National Youth Council Pakistan and represents UK student voice in Parliamentary discussions. She set up the Climate Action Society at University College London.
Early life and Education
Ayaz was born in Karachi but lived most of her life around the Middle East growing up in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Riyadh.
Ayaz attended the Karachi Grammar School in Karachi from where she graduated following, achieving 10A*s at the College section. She moved to London, United Kingdom for higher education. She attends World’s 8th best college (QS Rankings) University College London for her bachelor’s degree. She plans to continue climate activism and facilitate international sustainable development
Ayaz started her organisation the Climate Action Society (CAS). at UCL in March 2018, with operations launching in 2018 academic year (September). CAS is the first youth-powered platform that caters specifically to the US Sustainable Development Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change, liaising with university administrations, country politicians and big corporations. Ayaz heads a series of London-based flagship events including the annual “Sustainability Symposium” hosted at UCL. Through CAS, Ayaz organises conferences, workshops, campaigns and other activities to engage the UK wide youth in pushing for climate resilience
In December, 2018, Ayaz made her House of Lords debut at Millbank House to discuss diversity and inclusion in sustainability initiatives in the United Kingdom. She represented UK-wide universities in voicing support for the urgent need for carbon-neutral campuses. Since then, UK momentum on climate change has matured and led to the Parliament declaring “a climate emergency” - the first Parliament in the world to do so. Attributing to the Climate Action Society’s first year of operation, CAS became a nation-wide success as one of the most active student societies of all times.
