Christiana Figueres

Add To Speakers List

Throughout her extremely successful diplomatic career, Christiana Figueres has established herself as one of the world’s leading authorities on climate change, and is among the most highly respected environment speakers. 

For more than five years, Christiana worked as the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, crafting vitally important frameworks on how to tackle the crisis. She took on the role just six months after the catastrophic failure of COP15 in Copenhagen in 2009, and when booked as an after-dinner speaker is able to outline how she helped the world bounce back from this failure. 

Born in Costa Rica, you could say politics was in her blood. Her father was President of Costa Rica three times and her brother later took on the role. For Christiana, her passion was always the environment. After holding numerous roles in her career, including acting as an international negotiator, for her nation, she was appointed to the position of Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in 2010. 

Undoubtedly her biggest achievement in this role came in 2015 when she masterminded the Paris agreement, an international climate change treaty that saw the world’s biggest nations commit to policies that will combat the issue. When booked as an environment speaker, Christiana can explain to audiences how this was possible, and the difficulties encountered when negotiating with the biggest countries and organisations on the planet. 

Her vast career has seen her work in a vast array of climate change fields including sustainable development, energy, use of land and financial cooperation.   

There aren’t many environment speakers who have held key decision-making positions in the world’s biggest organisations, but Christiana Figueres has seen the climate crisis unfold from the very top. Inheriting integral roles at a drastic time in human history, when booked as an after-dinner speaker, audiences will be getting a truly unique insight into what needs to be done to prevent further damage to our planet.
