Cassia Moraes

I dedicated my studies and career to fostering international cooperation for climate action in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. I’m currently the Deputy Executive Coordinator of the Brazilian Forum on Climate Change, and also the Founder and CEO of Youth Climate Leaders (YCL). YCL won the 2017 MIT Climate CoLab Contest and I had the honor of presenting the organization on a private meeting with President Obama during his visit to Sao Paulo in 2017. I have an MPA degree in Development Practice from Columbia University, serving at the Lemann Fellows board of the Columbia Global Center Rio de Janeiro.
