Event Details

Join us to gain a deeper understanding of how the issues of gender equality and the climate crisis are interlinked; meet courageous women who are leading on climate change solutions and find out what gender informed climate action looks like.

ALL welcome!

This is the second event of a 3-part series exploring various aspects of climate justice. We can’t tackle climate change without tackling gender justice, and, as we’ll see, gender intersects with lots of other issues too.

We will hear from expert speakers from Scotland, England, and Nigeria who will present feminist responses to the climate crisis and explain how they use their voices to fight for gender justice and equality
