Injy Johnstone

Profile photo of Injy Johnstone I'm a 21-year-old, with a passion for solving problems. I am enthusiastic, ambitious, and resilient. I am a Wellingtonian, a traveler, and a coffee addict.
I work at the Ministry for the Environment as a Policy Analyst and also work as National Administrator of Generation Zero. On top of this I am a full-time student finishing my Honours Degree in International Trade Law at Victoria University. Outside of this I contribute my time and energy to various environmental and social causes. I’m on the board of the Endangered Species Foundation, UNESCO's Youth Reference Group, and run the Foster Child Support Network.
My aspirations for the future are to help design solutions to adapt and mitigate climate change as well as empower people to be able to embrace a low carbon lifestyle. More fundamentally, I want to continue to work with good people to get great stuff done.
The Be. Leadership Programme has taught me about my leadership style and the strengths and weaknesses that go along with it. This has helped me shape how I approach certain challenges, as well as how I relate to people. This self-discovery of my own leadership style is, I believe, the first step in becoming an authentic leader. If I could change one thing in the world, it would be to enable more people to visualise and manifest change in their lives, communities and the world.
