News, August 27 2018

INTERNATIONAL: The Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) has announced 22 “Climate Trailblazers:” individuals from around the world representing both emerging and established voices on climate change action, activism and ambition. The Trailblazers, who show through action that “everyday people can do extraordinary things,” will raise awareness regarding the Summit’s goals within their own networks and specific climate arenas in the lead up to the GCAS.

Of the 22 Climate Trailblazers, six are from North America, three from Central or South America, two from Europe, four from Africa, three from Asia and four from Australia or Oceania.

The Trailblazers work with a diversity of issues, including sustainable farming, green technology, climate justice and coral reefs, and include, for example, a social activist who develops education campaigns on uncontrolled fires in Africa, a civil engineer working on sustainable development in Iraq and a young innovator who developed a hydroponics system to improve human health and resilience to climate change in Kiribati.
