Ndiye mwanzilishi mwenza na mkurugenzi mtendaji wa US Youth Climate Strike; shirika lisilo la faida linalojikita kukuza uelewa na kudai hatua kuhusu shida ya hali ya hewa.[3]

UanaharakatiEdit

Coleman kwanza alihisi kuvutiwa kuelekea uanamazingira wakati alikuwa na umri wa miaka kumi: baada ya kujua kwamba wanyama anaowapenda, slothi, wanapungua kwa sababu ya ukataji miti. Kisha alifanya mabadiliko makubwa ya maisha akiongozwa na maisha endelevu.[7] Mafunzo yake katika mradi wa Climate Reality Project yalimfundisha zaidi.[8]

Baada ya kuona uanaharakati wa kimazingira wa Greta Thunberg na migomo ya hali ya hewa ya vijana huko Uropa, aliongozwa kufanya vivyo hivyo. Kwa hivyo, tangu Januari 2019, akiwa na umri wa miaka 13, alianza kuandamana mbele ya biashara au majengo ya serikali,[9] kama vile Colorado State Capitol.[10] Kila Ijumaa anagoma kudai hatua za kisiasa kuhusu ubora wa hewa, kuachwa kwa mtambo wa makaa ya mawe , nishati mbadala, nk. Pia alituma barua pepe kwa viongozi waliochaguliwa kuhusu suala hilo. Aliteswa sana na wenzake shuleni ambao walidhani uanaharakati wake ni wa ajabu.[7]

Coleman angeandamana peke yake hadi alipoweza kuanzisha US Youth Climate Strike pamoja na Isra Hirsi na Alexandria Villasenor.[11] Tangu wakati huo, migomo ya hali ya hewa imekuwa ikifanywa katika majimbo mengi huko Marekani.[12] Mnamo 15 Machi, maandamano ya vijana ya kimataifa na zaidi ya nchi 120+ zilizohusika yalifanyika.[13]

Coleman alifahamika zadi baada ya kuzungumza na Seneta wa serikali Cory Gardner juu ya wachafuzi wa kaboni kwenye mkutano wa umma katika ukumbi wa mji. Alimsihi achukue hatua na kuandaa harakati za msingi ili kuwezesha, hata hivyo, Gardner alikataa.[9]

Alipokuwa akifanya vichwa vya habari, alivutiwa na Al Gore, ambaye alimwalika Coleman kuzungumza kwa kampeni ya 24 Hours of Reality iliyoandaliwa na Climate Reality Project.[9]

Coleman kwa sasa anafanya kazi kwa Arid Agency, ambayo imekusudiwa kuongeza kasi ya kampeni za haki za mazingira na kijamii.[14]
