Founder @1millionwomen

Natalie is the founder of @1millionwomen a global movement of 970,000 women (and counting) who are fighting the climate crisis by changing the way we live. Her own climate journey from apathy to real action cuts through complexity and delivers a simple message that resonates with women and girls of all ages and that goes to the heart and soul of what 1 Million Women is all about. I used to be a cosmetics manufacturer. On the topic of climate change I was no where but in 2006 I had an epiphany and I changed. I realised that individual action is a key solution to solving the climate crisis and that women are the game changers. So I deciding to leave behind the over-packaged world of skincare behind and set out to create an organisation that inspires and empowers women to act. In March 2019 1MW won a global people’s choice award. In 2013 we received an award from the United Nations for the work we do. In 2017 I won Australian Geographics Conservationist of the Year. My book ‘Every woman’s guide to saving the planet’ is published by Harper Collins.
