Fleur Newman has always been motivated to pursue a career where she can contribute to making our societies more sustainable. She currently leads the work on the Gender and Climate Change agenda item under the Climate Change Convention (UNFCCC) and is the Gender Focal Point and the Focal Point for Women at the UNFCCC Secretariat. Her background is in climate change, sustainable development, energy and international law and in advocating for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
In this podcast, Fleur talks to us about her role in the UNFCCC, opportunities to correct gender imbalance and how as a society we need to collectively push for this to happen in the near future.
