Peggy Oki and Laura Wells – Change agents.
Peggy Oki is the pioneering female member of the iconic Z Boys skateboard crew, whose art inspires others to care deeply about the oceans. Laura Wells is using her international profile as a model, marine biologist and social influencer to protect the planet by fighting the war on plastic. How will these two motivators inspire you to become an agent for change?
Meet Peggy Oki, skateboarder, surfer, artist, environmental activist whose art inspires others to care about our oceans. In the ’70s, she broke into the boys-club as the only female member of the Zephyr Skateboard Team, made famous in the films Dogtown and Z Boys. Now at 60, she still skates and surfs daily. Her love of the waves directly informs her art. The large scale public art installation Origami Whales Project has enamoured hundreds of thousands of participants to the plight of whales and dolphins.
Laura Wells is an Environmentalist, presenter and one of Australia’s top plus size models. Holding degrees in both Biology and Law, Laura’s passion for the environment, love for the ocean and interest in climate change has led her to become a positive role model, advocate and ambassador for change.
