Amplifying the voices of girls and women in climate justice and gender equality

Meet Julieta Martinez, a Chilean woman who, at 19 years old, is already making a huge impact in the world of climate justice and gender equality activism. Her recently published book "No soy Julieta" is a declaration of principles reflecting her belief that she is just one of many young people working to make their voices heard. But Julieta's work goes beyond just putting pen to paper.
At the age of 12, Julieta noticed a lack of participation spaces for school-aged children in social innovation talks and events. This sparked her interest in the issues of gender equality, climate action, and their intersection. With the support of her mother, Julieta founded Tremendas, a collective platform for global action that focuses on amplifying the voices of girls who are fighting for change, particularly those who face greater vulnerabilities and challenges within their communities. "The climate crisis is not gender-neutral. It is no coincidence that 80% of climate refugees are women and girls. They are 14 times more likely to die in a natural disaster," she said to El País.

Julieta's work has not gone unnoticed. She has spoken at several high-profile events, including COP25 and COP26, and was appointed as a counselor for the Youth Task Force of UN Women at the age of 16, becoming the first Latin American girl to hold an international advisory position. In 2021, she shared the stage with Hillary Clinton as a keynote speaker at the Generation Equality Forum in Paris.
Her message is clear: activism can take many forms, and everyone has a role to play in creating a more just and sustainable future. She challenges the stereotype that activists are only young people with placards shouting in the streets. So, whether you're a young person or not, let's take inspiration from Julieta's dedication to amplifying the voices of those who are not heard and join her in the fight for a better world.
