Momentum for Change Advisory Panel
Ms. Kelly Rigg

Kelly Rigg is the Executive Director of the Global Call for Climate Action (GCCA), a global alliance of more than 300 organizations collaborating under the banner of the TckTckTck campaign. She has been leading international campaigns for nearly 30 years on climate, energy, oceans, Antarctica and other issues. She was a senior campaign director for Greenpeace International and a founder of the Varda Group consultancy providing campaign and strategic advice to a wide range of NGOs.

Much of her campaigning has been aimed at achieving strong results from international fora. From 2004 to 2009, she coordinated the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition, an alliance of more than 60 NGOs worldwide, working to achieve a UN General Assembly moratorium on high seas bottom trawling. She led Greenpeace International's campaign on climate and renewable energy at the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development, and the international campaign to save Antarctica  from 1986-1990. She has been with the GCCA since 2009, as it came together in the run-up to COP 15 in Copenhagen.

She began her career in the US, campaigning against the massive increase in offshore oil drilling proposed by James Watt and the Reagan administration.
