Feminist Action Nexus for Economic and Climate Justice: Global Kickoff 

Meeting banner

The Feminist Action Nexus on Climate and Economic Justice

invites you to join us for our Global Kickoff

Tuesday, 12 April 2022 from 12:00 to 15:00 UTC (convert to your time zone here).

To register to join us, please click here.  

Emerging out of the Generation Equality Forum, the Action Nexus is co-convened by the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET), the Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), the Women’s Working Group on Financing for Development (WWG on FfD), and the Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO). Together with dynamic global South-based activist-intellectuals, these four organizations have begun to outline a conceptual framework that unpacks the connections between neoliberalism, patriarchy, white supremacy, and colonialism.

We invite you to join us as we outline a collective advocacy agenda to advance a vision for a feminist and decolonial global green new deal, grounded in a blueprint for a feminist agenda for people and planet. This three-hour global kickoff meeting will draw connections between the emerging work of the Action Nexus and the advocacy and activism of feminist movements across the world, particularly in the global/economic South.

Beginning with a grounding in the conceptual framework of the Action Nexus, this action-oriented strategy session will include breakout groups across regions and issue areas. As outcomes, the event will collectively produce a policy map of upcoming events and processes and a draft advocacy strategy for the Action Nexus, including the publication of advocacy briefs and an accountability mechanism before the end of 2022.

Date: Tuesday, 12 April, 2022

Esta reunión de lanzamiento mundial de tres horas establecerá conexiones entre el trabajo emergente del Nexo de Acción Feminista y la incidencia y el activismo de los movimientos feministas en todo el mundo, particularmente en el Sur global/económico.

Como resultados, el evento producirá colectivamente un mapeo políticos de los próximos eventos y procesos y un borrador de estrategia de promoción para el Nexo de Acción Feminista, incluida la publicación de informes de incidencia y un mecanismo de rendición de cuentas antes de finales del 2022.

En collaboration avec des activistes-intellectuels dynamiques basés dans le Sud, ces quatre organisations ont commencé à définir un cadre conceptuel qui dévoile les liens entre le néolibéralisme, le patriarcat, la suprématie blanche et le colonialisme.

Nous vous invitons à nous rejoindre alors que nous décrivons un programme de plaidoyer collectif pour faire avancer une vision d’un nouveau pacte vert mondial féministe et décolonial, fondé sur un plan pour un programme féministe pour les personnes et la planète. Cette réunion mondiale de lancement de trois heures établira des liens entre le travail émergent du Nexus d’action et le plaidoyer et l’activisme des mouvements féministes à travers le monde, en particulier dans le Sud global/économique.

Commençant par une mise à la terre dans le cadre conceptuel du Nexus d’action, cette séance de stratégie axée sur l’action comprendra des groupes de discussion dans les régions et les domaines d’intérêt. Comme résultats, l’événement produira collectivement une carte politique des événements et processus à venir et un projet de stratégie de plaidoyer pour le Nexus d’action, y compris la publication de notes de plaidoyer et un mécanisme de responsabilisation avant la fin de 2022.

The closing ceremony will be a celebration of the unity, diversity, expertise and learning you all have contributed during these 8 months as participants, session organizers, facilitators, and speakers. It will be a unique opportunity to reflect on the symposium’s goals and the Ubuntu Symposium journey we have been on together.
