Women on the Front Line: Healing the Earth, Seeking Justice

9 November @ 05:00 - 07:00 EST

Free

Women are on the front line of the climate emergency so therefore they need to be at the forefront of the climate response. This is a critical year both for climate justice and for progressing a just recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. We must seize the opportunity to address these intersecting crises through transformational action to protect both the planet and the people who live upon it. We need a renewed global social contract that delivers on the Paris Agreement, human rights, and the Sustainable Development Goals. Christian Aid’s new report calls for a feminist and decolonial approach to climate change that shifts power and resources to women and the Global South, and delivers co-benefits for gender, climate and environmental justice. Please join our event and hear inspiring speakers who are making this change happen, including:

  • Amanda Mukwashi, CEO, Christian Aid
  • Kavita Naidu, human rights and feminist climate justice advocate
  • Ikal Angelei, politician and environmentalist
  • Rudelmar Bueno de Faria, ACT Alliance General Secretary

We will also be showing a short film about women’s climate activism in Kenya, and recorded messages from climate activists in the Philippines and Papua New Guinea

Please note, tickets for the live event are limited, but you can also join online. Links will be shared with people registered for the online event before the meeting.
