Svanfridur Mura (she/her)
High School Co-Chair & Green Amendments Campaign Co-Coordinator
Newark Academy - Class of 2024
Svanfridur has been passionate about the environment for her entire life. She got started composting in her middle school’s environmental club, and then by getting involved in local politics around open space and other sustainability issues with Our Green West Orange. In addition to her role as Co-Chair, she also co-coordinates NJSSC’s campaign for the Green Amendment to add environmental rights to the NJ constitution, which she believes has the potential to drastically change the legal system in a world that so many young people have recognized as needing systemic change. She is also a trained Climate Reality Leader and an active member of the NJ Chapter, and volunteers at her county environmental center. In her free time, she enjoys reading, writing, gardening, language learning, and walking with her dogs.
