About Luke Meyers
Luke was a dedicated environmental advocate who lost his battle with cancer in 2019.
A Greenwich High School student, Luke was a board member of the GHS Environmental Action Club and a Bruce Museum Seaside Center volunteer. Luke dedicated his spare time to the improvement of the environment.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is honoring Luke by installing a climate change education exhibit at the Bruce Museum Seaside Center. He wanted the exhibit to focus on sea-level rise and its impact on Long Island Sound marine life, and to increase awareness of what actions can be taken to slow down global warming.
Luke was an aspiring young activist who wanted to "make changes in our community that not only benefit the environment, but through this, benefit ourselves and all of those around us."
Luke’s courage and commitment not only inspired the first beach clean up, but also spurred multiple clean up projects worldwide and motivated hundreds to make personal pledges to help the environment.
Luke was an inspiration to all who knew him, and he is remembered for his immeasurable kindness, his remarkable creativity, his passion for learning, and his determination to effect positive change in the world.
Luke's spirit and boundless energy will be with us at Greenwich Point.
