Event Details

At ANEC, we work with a range of carbon removal solutions as we recognise that there is no one, quick fix for the climate crisis. In the same way, there is no one perspective or voice that should be dominant in the climate conversation. At this event, a range of global perspectives on women’s power in climate action will be explored, emphasising the necessity to create a just and sustainable future for all. 

Having perspectives from developing and developed countries will offer a range of perspectives and widen the understanding of climate justice. We hope the event raises awareness of the differing realities of the impacts of climate change and better prepares our audience to facilitate conversations and make decisions to support the movement towards climate justice. We will also explore what climate justice means in the context of net zero movements. Where should the responsibility lie? Who should be prioritised? How can we provide better businesses cases to connect climate justice, climate solutions and  net zero targets?

We cannot have climate justice within social and racial justice, and this event will offer an opportunity to hear from incredible women and share knowledge on how we can secure this low carbon, socially and racially just future.
