For The Earth And All Generations -

Women Are Rising For Climate Justice

& Community-Led Solutions

In the face of the escalating climate crisis, and the devastating impacts of environmental and social degradation on the Earth and our diverse communities – the voices, actions, solutions, and leadership of global women on the frontlines of climate change must be recognized.

 

Women are disproportionately impacted by the climate crisis, yet are simultaneously vital leaders in local and global solutions. The Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International engages women and feminists across the gender spectrum worldwide in policy advocacy, on-the-ground projects, direct action, trainings, and movement building for global climate justice.

Join us in action today as we stand for the Rights of Women, Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Rights of Nature, and Rights of Future Generations!
