Climate Heroes

Climate Heroes is a project and an NGO I founded in 2010, with the aim to provide inspiring examples of women and men who already started acting to mitigate climate change.

From the everyday citizen to the officials involved in media or politics, the Climate Heroes can inspire us in our daily life, and help us change our behavior while making the task of mitigating climate change more humanly reachable. Gathered within one single project, they are the people who strive to understand, anticipate or limit the impacts of climate change.
