About Climate Heroes
Climate Heroes is a non-profit multimedia project and educational essay for the public, which gathers worldwide stories of men and women, citizens, scientists, media, politicians and entrepreneurs who have started acting to elevate consciousness about, mitigate, or understand Climate Change. By the positive examples they provide, we trust they can inspire the great many to start mitigating climate change with small daily acts, or larger endeavours.
Climate Heroes is an independent non-profit registered in France.
Climate Heroes received the official COP 21 label, in preparation for the Conference of Parties, or United Nations Climate Change Conference, in Paris this December 2015. The label is issued by the Secretary General for COP21 and the French Ministry of Environment.
Who are the Climate Heroes and what do they do?
Climate Heroes come from all walks of life. From a local village activist to a globe trotting scientist. A respected religious figure to a youth educator. All are very different and from varied backgrounds, but all of them fight to mitigate Climate Change in their own way and ultimately have the same goal: to preserve and improve the natural environment around us. By shedding the light on those men and women who stand out by their values and actions to help mitigate Climate Change for the wealth of all, and by giving them a platform to voice their thoughts and experiences, we want to introduce them across the globe. So, as inspirational models for the rest of us, we can all learn from them.

Yet, ultimately they must be inspiring. Passionate people who will spread their knowledge, their issues and their voice on the one issue that is affecting all of us.
