should make the news.
Aymara woman Kantuta Conde is an activist from La Paz, Bolivia. Kantuta is a member of Red de Jovenes Indígenas, the International Land Coalition, UNICEF’s Voices of Youth platform, and the Pan American Health Organization’s Youth Caucus. Kantuta believes in the importance of intersectional activism around climate change, and has advocated for greater linguistic and financial inclusion at this year’s COP27. “I cannot speak about climate change without talking about our land and territory, traditional knowledge, Indigenous languages and mental health,” Kantuta says. “Everything is connected.”
