Making change happen
The poles are melting, the number of endangered species is increasing and social inequality prevails even in the richest countries. These challenges are a call to action for all of us, but can we come together to confront them?
As we make decisions about the future of our planet, we must account for the values and needs of all people. In order to achieve this, we need a greater presence of women in top positions and the promotion of inclusive leaders.
My name is Alba and I have been selected as one of the 75 scientists that compose the fifth cohort of HOMEWARD BOUND, a project that promotes women in science and supports actions to fight climate change. After completing a leadership program led by world experts starting November 2019, we will depart to Antarctica at the end of 2020. I invite you to know what I learn throughout the program and to take part in making change happen!
