I create digital spaces and amplify voices

on the most pressing issues of our time.

Hi, I'm Julia Wiklander

My passion is to mobilize, inspire and support people around the world to create waves of positive change. I work in the intersection of digital media, storytelling, human rights and sustainability. I’m the founder of Waterfalls Media and the global feminist media platform, Girls’ Globe

Girls’ Globe hosts a community of activists, advocates, experts and organizations working to make this world a better place. Our audience spans every country of the world and reaches hundreds of thousands every month.

For over a decade, I’ve worked with a range of organizations – grassroots movements, international non-profits, UN agencies and private sector companies – to strengthen their positive impact through digital media and storytelling. 

As a seasoned communicator, I host courses and training to support changemakers, entrepreneurs and organizations to make a greater impact in a digital world and navigate feminist storytelling practices. 

I see it as my responsibility to make space for underrepresented voices globally, and to use my voice to advocate for equality and rights in my home country Sweden and beyond. 

I host the Hey Changemaker! podcast, in which I speak to inspiring people from around the world who’ve dedicated their lives and careers to creating positive change. They tell their stories and share their best advice! 

When I’m able, I write articles and contribute to books and other publications. I write about digital rights (I’m actually a digital minimalist), refugee rights, Swedish and international politics, and gender equality.

Amplifying Voices Worldwide

At the end of 2011 I started blogging about women’s and girls’ rights and health around the world – and started girlsglobe.org. Since then, Girls’ Globe has amplified the voices of hundreds of activists, advocates, experts and organizations on topics like sexual and reproductive health and rights, peace, sustainable development, mental health and feminism. We have members from more than 35 countries, across 5 continents and have brought young women activists and advocates to more than 14 global events in the past few years.

From an early age, I’ve enjoyed public speaking and have had the opportunity to lead conversations and events in many different capacities. Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to speak at and moderate events on stages from New York to South Africa. Whether it’s an event for high school students or global leaders, it’s my aim to bring a positive energy that inspires action through the voices and stories of changemakers.
