Avalon Theisen (currently 15 years old) was 7 years old when she first dreamed she could help make the world a better place for all living things. In the years since, she has grown her efforts into a non-profit organization called Conserve It Forward, which offers several environmental programs and activities. Encouraging the use of kindness and compassion to confront world issues, Avalon’s goal is to raise awareness and inspire action that benefits both the natural world and people. Some of Avalon's project focuses have been amphibian conservation, nature-themed art, edutainment, animal advocacy, and sustainable eating.
Now at age 15, Avalon has traveled the world to share her message, and work alongside others, while also inspiring people to believe in themselves, and to achieve their own dreams. Her efforts have been recognized with many awards, yet she feels her greatest achievement has been connecting with youth to inspire them to take small acts towards change, and helping them realize we can all make a positive difference no matter our age.
In 2016, Avalon started blogging at ThinkOutsideThePath.com, to explore a different dimension of her passion for the world, culture, and nature.
Avalon was a panelist at the 2015 Ashoka Future Forum in Washington, DC, and a Student Roundtable participant/presenter at the 2015 White House Champions of Change event. In late 2015, she was invited to take part in COP21 events (United Nations Climate Change Conference) in Paris, France, where she also presented.
“My goal is that everyone should feel interconnected with other living things and the
environment, because then they want to help and not destroy it."
