Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change - SF Bay Area
** Tuesday September 11, 2018 - Afternoon and evening, location in San Francisco, TBA **
Join the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International on September 11th, 2018 for ‘Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change - SF Bay Area’, a dynamic public Forum to be presented the day before the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) in California. A list of key calls to action from the WECAN Forum will be presented to the leadership of the GCAS the following day.
‘Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change - SF Bay Area’, will be an extraordinary gathering of women leaders from across the United States and around the world, joined in solidarity to speak out against environmental and social injustice, draw attention to root causes of the climate crisis, and present the diverse array of visions and strategies with which they are working to shape a healthy and equitable world.
International advocates, grassroots, Indigenous, and frontline women leaders, and policy-makers, will discuss topics including the intersectionality of gender and environment; Indigenous rights; the just transition; women and forest protection and regeneration; fossil fuel resistance efforts; women and agro-ecology/soils; environmental racism; and women’s leadership and calls for action within a climate justice framework.
Women have always been on the frontlines of climate change, now it is time for them to be at the forefront of all climate decision-making, just solutions, and movement building!
