Voices of Pioneers

Aria Luna, California | Climate Pioneer
What inspired you to become a climate activist?

My mom. She told me about the plastic pollution of the oceans and I also saw a lot of news about wildfires and floods. So I’m happy to be able to raise awareness with my work. If I ever get a really big platform, I want to raise even more money for good causes.

What inspired you to join the Climeworks community?

Climeworks technology is another vital part of what we need to help solve humanity’s greatest existential threat – the overheating of our planet. With my support, I am keen to help Climeworks and many others bring this technology to mass scale and ensure drawdowns contribute a major part to controlling our GHG build up.

Tell us a little bit about your project/website.
My website,, was created to help promote awareness of climate change among students and to help bring about a better future for us. This began as a homeschool project which focused on trees and climate change including new technologies and innovative ways to help reduce the impact of CO₂ emissions. I have continued to update the site with exciting advancements in technology and additional websites I have discovered.
Why did you choose to feature Climeworks?
The Climeworks mission is interesting and innovative. I knew I wanted to be a part of it somehow. Given enough time, I believe that the ORCA is a revolutionary design that could – and should - change the world for the better.
What would the future ideally look like to you?
People and nature working in tandem for the benefit of humanity and the planet as a whole.  Innovative technologies like Climeworks will become commonplace.

Every CO₂ molecule taken out of the atmosphere and stored safely in the ground has an immediate cooling effect - while every additionally emitted CO₂ molecule increases warming for decades.
