It will take some time before the world learns if the Paris climate change agreement is worth the paper it's written on. 25 year old Auckland law student Siobhan Patia is not content to wait. Siobhan's parents came to New Zealand from the Cook Islands and now she's determined to make sure people are fully aware just how climate change is already hurting Pacific nations.
Shiobhan is one of a select group of young people taking part in an accelerator programme called Live the Dream that is taking place over summer. Live The Dream is part of Inspiring Stories which encourages young Kiwis with big ambitions.
