Why a Summit on Women & Climate?

Climate change is the greatest environmental and human rights threat of all time. And although women are creating cutting-edge grassroots climate solutions, they need more support. We believe it’s time for women’s and environmental rights movements to work together to:

  • Share strategies women are using to combat climate change in their communities
  • Address challenges such as criminalization and violence against women climate leaders
  • Strategize ways to engage governments, corporations, international financial institutions, and others around supporting women’s climate solutions

What We Will Achieve

  • An understanding among policymakers and funders of the critical importance of supporting effective women’s climate interventions
  • Increased resources for women’s climate leadership
  • A stronger, unified movement for women’s rights and environmental sustainability

Can individuals attend the Summit?

Summit participation is limited to advisors, staff, and representatives from our three networks. But we are happy to answer your questions and share learnings and information with you. Please contact Katy Neusteter at katy@greengrants.org. And remember to sign up for updates using the opt-in form above or follow our tweets at #WomenAndClimate.
