Christiana Figueres received the 2023 RSA Albert Medal, awarded annually to honour outstanding, regenerative and impactful innovation that is enabling people, places and the planet to flourish in harmony.  

Christiana Figueres is an internationally recognised leader on global climate change, credited with forging a new brand of collaborative diplomacy that led to the historic Paris Agreement of 2015.

In her courageous determination to lead the process to a universally agreed regulatory framework, she brought together national and subnational governments, corporations and activists, financial institutions, and communities of faith, think tanks and technology providers, NGOs and parliamentarians, to jointly deliver the unprecedented climate change agreement.

RSA Chief Executive Andy Haldane presented Christiana Figueres with the 2023 RSA Albert Medal in recognition of the leadership and creativity she has shown in the areas of climate and nature action, and in her award address, she will tell us about her ongoing commitment to the acceleration of the global response to climate change.
