Climate Justice: A Man-Made Problem With a Feminist Solution

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Why should we be looking to feminist solutions to climate change? How are gender equality and the environmental crisis linked?

Join a group of the world’s leading climate change and social justice activists to discover how they are leading the charge, and how you can be a part of the solution.

As these extraordinary women meet on stage, discover why the collective action of women is fundamental to addressing the most urgent humanitarian issues of our time, and how women are disproportionately affected.

The first speaker to be announced is former President of Ireland Mary Robinson, one of the world’s most influential climate change and social justice activists.

Following the birth of Robinson’s first grandchild in 2003, the faceless, shadowy menace of climate change became, in an instant, deeply personal.

Travelling the world from Mississippi to Malawi, Robinson has met women living on the front lines of the environmental crisis, discovering the resilience and ingenuity already unlocking extraordinary change.

At this talk, explore how you can be a part of a powerful and humane manifesto for change, and why feminist solutions are key to tackling the most pressing issue of our time.
