Zanagee Artis is a 20 year old from Clinton, Connecticut and a co-founder of the youth climate justice organization Zero Hour. Zanagee became involved in the climate movement because, having grown up on the coast of Connecticut, he was passionate about mitigating plastic pollution and climate change that endangers marine ecosystems. As director of logistics he organized the Zero Hour Youth Climate March in Washington D.C. in 2018. Zanagee has spoken at and personally organized a number of protests and rallies in Rhode Island, including the Global Climate Strikes in Providence, RI. Furthermore, alongside fellow Zero Hour organizers, he organized “This is Zero Hour: The Youth Climate Summit” in Miami, Florida which took place from July 12th to July 14th, 2019. Zanagee has also led the effort to establish Zero Hour’s international climate justice education campaign: Getting to the Roots of Climate Change, which launched in March of 2019. He is currently studying environmental studies and political science at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, and plans to attend law school following his undergraduate study.
