Summary

These 15 contemporary climate champions are on the frontlines of science to create a sustainable future on Earth.

They are climate scientists, journalists, professors, academics, researchers, and policy makers from around the world who draft policies with real-world impact, run science labs to find new answers to old problems, and lead organizations at the forefront of change. These women reveal how racial and social injustices lie at the root of the climate crisis.  

Their stories are accessible and energetic, with spotlights on the triumphs and struggles of women who are working to protect the planet.  

As young readers learn how these champions are rising up around the world, they will learn how to be part of the solution.
