Christiana Figueres has already featured as a Girl Swoon on this blog, but blimmin’ heck I HAVE to show you this video of her meeting the trackers from the Adopt a Negotiator project in Cancun. Yvo de Boer was a great Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, and was definitely always so supportive of the youth there and other civil society groups. But Christiana has just built on that and taken it to another level! She is such an inspirational woman, such a role model, she gets it. Honestly, this is the first time in a while I have been inspired by someone in a postion of power and not just utterly fucked off with them. It’s such a relief to know there are people like that out there representing!
Hoorah! Go Christiana!
p.s. Talking of great people in power, check out this amazing speech by US Senator Bernie Sanders.
