Faiza Oulahson


Faiza Oulahsen, as program director for climate and energy at Greenpeace, fights climate change in many ways. Often in the background by lobbying, following international climate conferences, organizing public campaigns and conducting negotiations on climate policy. Sometimes on the forefront, with T.V. appearances and high-profile actions. In 2013, the fight against oil drilling in the Arctic temporarily cost her her freedom. After an action at a drilling platform of Russian oil and gas company Gazprom, she was locked up in a Russian cell for two months. Faiza joined Greenpeace in 2011 as one of the youngest campaign leaders of the international organization ever. Before that, she studied political science and international relations.
