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.
It has since grown into a collaborative photography and video movement, and an educational essay for the public, with contributing photographers based in over 7 countries. We aim to shed the light on the people who stand out by their values and actions, along with the solutions they try to promote.
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.
Gathered in a book (available to order and in bookstores in September 2021) they demonstrate how individual initiatives can inspire collective action and foster change. The Climate Heroes book, edited by Hemeria, includes 8 of the project stories, told along the lines of the universal “journey of the hero”: from call to action, to a journey to discovering a new way of living, and a renewed proposal for their communities. It is also a book in which the reader can write down their ideas and inspirations, before passing it on to someone else, thus taking part to the movement.
