forum (2).png

Please join us from September 20-22, 2022 for a three-day forum, hosting virtual and in-person events during climate week in New York City!

During this three-day forum, grassroots, Indigenous, Black, Brown, and frontline women and gender diverse leaders, global advocates, and policy-makers will join together in solidarity to speak out against environmental and social injustice, draw attention to root causes of multiple interlocking crises, and present the diverse array of visions, projects, policy frameworks and strategies with which they are working to shape a healthy and equitable world. The Forum is an inclusive space across identities and the gender spectrum, and there will be both in-person and virtual events.

 

Registration is required for each event. For the in-person events you will be taken to an Eventbrite page to register for both events at the same time.

 

To respect elders and immuno-compromised persons, masks are required for in-person events. Thank you for your understanding. Please register for each event at the link below!

About

As the climate emergency accelerates, now more than ever we need the solutions of women and gender diverse leaders to protect our communities and the global climate! 

As we make our way toward COP27 in November, we are demanding governments and financial institutions take urgent climate action while supporting women's leadership. Gender inequity and violations of women’s rights continue to proliferate globally due to the interconnected systems of patriarchy, capitalism, racism, the commodification of nature, colonialism, and imperialism. Due to unequal gender norms globally, women are simultaneously the most adversely impacted by climate change and socio-ecological degradation, and yet are indispensable actors and leaders of just and effective solutions. Within this struggle, women and feminists must stand at the forefront of policy-making and action to create long-term systemic change.

To confront these deepening crises and accelerate a path forward, we need to collectively uphold and implement protections for human rights, women’s rights, Indigenous rights, the rights of nature, and advance just and resilient community-led solutions— and women are leading the way!
