There are no shortage of transformative agendas and visions put forth by feminists for climate justice around the world, who work tirelessly to build power through organizing and advocacy at all levels. From building movements, intervening in policy processes, and advocating for gender-just climate solutions, feminists are at every avenue demanding systemic change and an end to patriarchy.
This feminist organizing at local, national and global levels must be in deep conversation and must support grassroots feminism — after all, we must achieve climate justice and gender justice at all of these levels, particularly because they mutually enforce and complement each other..In this session, we’ll hear from three feminists who, together with their communities, are organizing local climate actions and linking up with national and international movement organizing and advocacy efforts.
This session will create space to collectively learn what work we are all doing to advance feminist climate justice at national levels, and how this can shape our broader movement’s global advocacy at COP and beyond.
All events will take place on Zoom and we will email through the relevant links beforehand when you register. You can get help installing zoom here.
