Local women in four continents are redefining the narratives of tackling climate change in policy, protest, education and innovation. For instance, Maheshvari in South India delivers satellite information on weather conditions to help protect fishermen’s livelihoods. Similarly, Jasmine Thomas is supreme force in preventing efforts to build tar sands pipelines threatening water security. These women are working at the grassroots level not only to protect our environment, but also to create sustainable life for future generations. Photo credit: IAWRT
