Not far down the BBC's list of 100 Women for 2023 is 31 year old Christchurch-based indigenous rights and disability advocate Kera Sherwood-O'Regan (Kāi Tahu).

Kera is the co-founder of Activate, a social impact agency intent on climate justice and creating social change.

Kera's practice is grounded in a Te Ao Māori approach to the mainstream climate conversation. She argues minorities are most affected by climate change but can make a big difference in the fight against it.
