Here we will talk about some professional women’s organizations that have worked across the globe for climate change and sustainable ways to protect the environment. There are women who have made a difference in talking about the climate crisis and ways to impact the environment positively. Let us have a look at these women’s achievements and efforts.

At the age of 22 in 2018, she started the school strike across Germany with the title “Friday for Future”.

Women Leaders in Climate Advocacy: Inspiring Change for a Better Future
Climate change and environmental protection are our planet’s most pressing issues. Women leaders have been at the forefront of this fight, working to raise awareness and make a difference on a global scale. From indigenous rights activists to marine conservation advocates, these women have inspired change and paved the way for a more sustainable future.
One such leader is JoAnn Tall, a member of the Oglala Lakota Tribe and founding member of the Native Resource Coalition. Her activism against nuclear experimentation and uranium mining near the Black Hills of South Dakota has significantly impacted the fight for environmental justice.
Sylvia Earle, the founder of the Mission Blue Alliance, has been an ocean conservation and research champion. Her work has highlighted the damaging effects of overfishing and pollution on our marine ecosystems and inspired action to protect them.
Isatou Ceesay, a volunteer member of the US Peace Corps, has taken on the issue of plastic waste in her home country of The Gambia. By creating yarn from plastic residues found in local garbage, she has helped boost the country’s income while reducing plastic pollution.
Luisa Neubauer, the founder of the Friday for Future school strike in Germany, has been a powerful voice for climate action. Her advocacy has sparked a global movement of young people demanding government action to combat climate change.
