Women Sweep UN’s 2021 ‘Champions Of The Earth’ Awards

A Caribbean-based prime minister, a scientist, a group of indigenous women, and an entrepreneur were announced on Tuesday as this year’s winners of the United Nations’ Champions of the Earth awards. According to the UN Environment Programme, the all-female Champions were chosen for their impact and leadership in advancing bold action on behalf of people and the planet. “These Champions of the Earth inspire, defend, mobilize and act to tackle the greatest environmental challenges of our time, including ecosystem protection and restoration”, the agency said in a statement. The agency’s Executive Director, Inger Andersen, said, This year’s Champions are women who not only inspire us, but also remind us that we have in our hands the solutions, the knowledge and the technology, to limit climate change and avoid ecological collapse.”
