Our planet is the only one with continuous life, therefore it is becoming increasingly necessary to create a feeling of urgency to rescue our mother earth from all kinds of planet-harming actions. Our mother earth must be preserved since our very survival is dependent on it. It is our duty to promote awareness about the need for protecting our mother planet.
The bad news is, the environment is in distress. The oceans are becoming increasingly hostile because of plastic pollution, air pollution, deforestation, and land degradation is also becoming increasingly detrimental to human health.
Thousands of change-makers from more than 80 countries are also raising their voices on UPDEED to fight for our planet. This makes it an issue that needs the attention of world leaders like never before.
Mother Earth is blatantly urging us to act. The good news is, there are many individuals working worldwide to save and preserve our planet, and they are doing an excellent job!
Here is a list of the top 10 influencers that are working to save Mother Earth.
1. Great Thunberg
It is impossible to discuss influential people who are preserving Mother Earth without mentioning Greta Thunberg. She is one of many inspiring climate change activists you should follow if you care about the environment. Greta Thunberg is young, yet she is already a well-known voice in the campaign against climate change.
Thunberg embarked on a three-week school strike before Sweden’s general elections in 2018 to encourage her government to act on climate change. Her statements like “How Dare You?” had gone viral on internet where she accused world leaders for irreversible climate damage.
She has ignited a worldwide youth movement and been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize since then.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio is an oscar winning actor and an environmentalist. He established The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998, which is committed to the long-term health and well-being of Plant Earth.
It supports creative initiatives that save fragile wildlife from extinction while restoring balance to imperiled ecosystems and communities via collaborative partnerships. His acclaimed documentary created awareness and is one of the most watched documentaries on climate change
3. Anne Hidalgo
The first female Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo takes the third place in this list because she is placing the environment at the heart of her plans.

This is hardly surprising given that she is also the CEO of two waste-free businesses: the plastic-free Package Free and The Simply Co!

10. Dave Coulson
The camera, according to Dave Coulson, is a tool for raising awareness of ecosystems and comprehending our relationship to the Earth. His photography ranges from documenting endangered species and the vanishing landscapes that contribute to their extinction to monitoring animal migrations in their natural habitat.
The photographer and filmmaker from Toronto uses the power of narrative to connect people to nature on an emotional and intimate level. He works with NGOs and other groups on a regular basis to inspire sustainable action.
