Keleigh Annau

Founder and Executive Director, Lights Out Canada

Keleigh founded “Lights Out Canada” as a high school student on Vancouver Island, with the goal of raising awareness about the climate crisis, and empowering her peers to take action. On Earth Day, schools turn out their lights and follow climate change curriculum that “Lights Out Canada” provides. Next April will mark the 10th annual “Lights Out” event and the point at which a million students will have participated across Canada since 2005, including nearly 400,000 in the past 2 years.  Now 25, recent grad Keleigh has built Lights Out into a charitable organization, complete with a Board and funding.
