Hello and welcome! I'm Marie-Claire Graf,

looking forward getting to know passioned, inspiring, visionary and motivated people from around the world
to solve today’s climate and biodiversity crisis and sustainability challenges
in order to protect the Swiss glacier wonderland and innocent creatures like Pandas. 

I’m a Swiss based youth advocate, global change maker and speaker for just sustainable development and ambitious climate action. As we have the obligation to be involved and the right to be heard it’s my aspiration to inspire, empower and enable youth to take meaningful, impactful and positive actions to create a momentum for change. I was initiating and am leading several associations and movements in the fields of climate action, sustainable development, youth and women empowerment and education such as the Sustainability Week International. Through my diverse engagement in several initiatives on a local, national and international level I got various awards and prizes such the United Nations Youth Climate Champion of Switzerland. 

You can read more about my passion on the website and get to know me better, and don’t forget to follow, like, or add me on Social Media!
