Amnesty has been collaborating with Greenpeace to organise a live Roundtable discussion on Feminism in the climate crisis which will be streamed on March 8, 8pm CET/7pm GMT, on Amnesty’s Facebook page and on Greenpeace International social media channels!
This is part of a series of live discussions organised by Greenpeace in collaboration with activists, movement leaders, journalists, scientists, and groups around the world to highlight the intersectionality of the climate movement, amplify local, national, and global battles, and demonstrate how we’re all more connected than we may think.
Throughout history, the feminist and LGBTQI+ movement has demonstrated its permanent and essential position at the forefront of all social revolutions. The climate crisis is now dangerously exacerbating issues of social justice, and it has been well documented that the repercussions of climate change disproportionately affect women and minorities, and those facing marginalisation and discrimination.
But far from remaining passive, women around the world have created networks of action, support, and resistance to defend human rights and nature, making it known that the patriarchal system in which we live is directly connected to the over-exploitation of natural resources, and in turn the climate and inequality crisis that we find ourselves in today.
The upcoming Roundtable discussion will be moderated by Tais Gadea Lara, a well respected multimedia climate journalist in Argentina, with the participation of the following incredible panel:
- Marie Christina Kolo, Ecofeminist/LGBTQI+, Founder of Green N Kool, Madagascar.
- Noelene Nabulivou, Pacific Islander of diverse sexual orientation and gender identity, co-founder of DIVA, Fiji.
- Majandra Rodriguez Acha, Co-Executive Director at FRIDA, and co-founder of Tierra Activa Perú.
- Elisabeth Stern, member of Climate Seniors Switzerland
You will be able to watch the discussion on March 8, 7pm GMT, on youtube here.
(Tuesday) 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
