Climate Change Action – Women making the difference.

It is not just female activists leading the way but women with expertise in climate change interpreting the science that is so vital to addressing the future. We intuitively understand the importance of role models and these female scientists are inspirational figures at the heart of the issue. How do we give them greater visibility?
