Women’s leadership program in Antarctica

I was selected to participate in the one-year long leadership program Homeward Bound which culminated in a 3-week expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula. We are a network of women concerned about the climate emergency and convinced of the fundamental role that women are playing towards a sustainable planet. See this Nature paper that I co-signed together with 289 women to ask for a Marine Protected Area in the Antarctic Peninsula.

Together with a group of Spanish participants, we have created an association to push forward the climate and gender agenda and generate awareness in Spain (Ellas Lideran). See our OpEd about the role of Spain in the negotiations for a protected area in Antarctica.

I also directed the documentary Begin Again with Isaac Lupiáñez about Antarctica, but also about women, climate, maternity, and our duty to build a better future for the generations to come. See more information about the documentary.
