One-time cosmetics maker turned climate change campaigner Natalie Isaacs will join leading women from Africa and Latin America for a special session at the IUCN World Parks Congress in Sydney this Monday, November 17th.
The 'Inspiring Leadership in a Changing Climate' event at the once-a-decade Congress also features:
  • Young South African social entrepreneur Luvuyo Mandela, the great grandson of Nelson Mandela
  • Julia Marton-Lefevre, the global head of the IUCN, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature
  • Politicians and community leaders from Mozambique, Liberia and Cameroon in Africa and also a representative from Latin America
Ms Isaacs is the founder of 1 Million Women, the Australian-based movement of women fighting climate change by taking action to cut waste and pollution in their daily lives. 1 Million Women has nearly 135,000 members around Australia and over 100,000 women and girls in its social networks.

The official agenda for the event including Ms Isaacs says: 'This evening session will offer stories of hope from leaders in climate change mitigation and adaptation who are providing socially inclusive and equitable results at various levels and will provide networking opportunities for building the capacity of women, youth, and indigenous people to play leadership roles at local, regional, national, and global levels.'


1 Million Women also is holding a very special event at the Congress on the 14th November. This event is to explore ‘Youths expression of climate change’ and the questions How do you feel about climate change? What does it mean to you? The audience will hear from high school girls through song, poetry, short films and artworks. This event captures a raw story of how this generation is feeling. 1 Million Women ambassador Bernie Hobbs is our MC.
