Women and girls from every region of the world are creating a mass movement for climate justice.
The Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice is a global campaign organized collectively by a group of regionally diverse women’s rights and feminist organizations brought together by the urgent need for just action on climate change.
Launched on July 14th 2015, the campaign aims to encourage actions from women’s groups, feminist initiatives and allied organizations in all regions, countries, cities and communities around the world as well as coordinated actions in the lead up to COP21 in December in Paris, France as well as beyond COP21.
WEDO has played a central role in organizing and facilitating the campaign as both a partner organization and member of the coordinating committee. With the support of thousands of individuals and organizations similar to WEDO, the campaign is mobilizing women and girls across the world. From educational workshops and film screenings to concerts and marathons in the name of climate justice, the Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice is demanding change.
The campaign encompasses all of the complexities of climate change especially the interlinkages between climate change and gender with a focus on the following six themes: energy, economy, solutions, survival, power and climate justice.
