Artist, Filmmaker and Global Advocate for Social, Gender and Climate Justice
Inna Modja is a Malian-French artist, filmmaker and global advocate for social, gender and climate justice. In her 15-year tenure as an activist, she has dedicated herself to fighting female genital mutilation and climate change. Passionate about social, gender and climate justice, she’s a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification, trying to do her part in finding solutions to fight against desertification and drought, while also telling stories of the communities living on the frontline of climate change.
She starred and served as an executive producer of the documentary “The Great Green Wall,” which showcases Africa’s efforts to restore degraded landscapes in the Sahel and control desert expansion while alleviating food insecurity, conflict, and forced migration. She also co-founded Code Green, a nonprofit harnessing the power of art, technology and web, to support social and climate justice. With Code Green, Modja and her team are exploring the potentials of blockchain, aiming to help artists, communities and collectors contribute to Earth’s healing and green justice.
