Daughter of an Argentinean diplomat in London, Susi is one of the founders of Greenpeace.

She bought and named the trawler“Rainbow Warrior” and has campaigned for Friends of the Earth and Oxfam, more recently on climate change and inequality.  She is author of the book  “A bonfire in my mouth” and she is a documentary film-maker.  Her film Kit & Maynie: Tea, Scones and Nuclear Disarmament was nominated for Best Director and Best Documentary at the New Zealand International Documentary Film Festival. She is currently producing the documentary Eighth Colour, about the Inupiat elder William Willoya who co-authored Warriors of the Rainbow, a seminal book of prophecies which inspired her to name the old Scottish trawler the Rainbow Warrior.

As a young woman, Susi turned her back on a lucrative career in publishing to dedicate her life to environmental and human rights activism.  Her current motto is "Still Rainbow, more Warrior!".
