DESCRIBE YOUR MOTIVATION FOR AND COMMITMENT TO CREATING A BETTER AND MORE SUSTAINABLE PLANET.

As a millennial, woman and Latin American lawyer, I am fond of tackling climate change by promoting local alternatives of resilience, adaptation and mitigation, which could be enhanced in national and local policy. Mainly, I arrive to the Women for Climate (W4C) community with a new focus on inclusive recycling, as professional volunteer of the citizenship initiative ReciVeci, which involves the worthy role of women waste pickers.
