Global Fund for Women’s Waves Event: A Digital Earth Day Event Celebrating Climate Justice M
How are multiple waves of feminist movements bringing about climate justice? For island communities around the world, the climate crisis is already here. Grassroots intergenerational and intersectional gender justice movements in the Caribbean and Pacific regions are already organizing for climate justice and creating innovative solutions the rest of the world can learn from.
In celebration of Earth Day 2021 and ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) to be held in Glasgow in November 2021, Global Fund for Women is hosting a discussion with climate justice activists in the Caribbean and Pacific regions to discuss grassroots strategies that holistically address climate change, its disproportionate effects on women, people of color, LGBTQI communities, and youth, and what action is needed to support this vital and urgent work.
