Dear Friends,

Happy New Year! 2012 is well underway and – with CSW just about to begin and Rio+20 only months away – we think this year is going to be a momentous one!

In this newsletter, you’ll find some indication of our priorities in 2012: pushing for continued progress toward a bold and binding global deal on climate change; promoting and fostering women’s leadership at multiple levels; partnering with incredible networks and organizations around the world to strengthen civil society’s access and impact for effective global governance – all integral in shaping the future we want. We’ll be at Rio+20 in June – along with many of you, we hope – to fight for it.

We could not work on our extensive and rigorous program without partnerships, so we want to begin the year by thanking you – our partners and friends – for your continued support. Moreover, we seek to start this busy year exemplifying the principles of empowerment and collaboration that we promote. Let us work together in peace and cooperation – while driving relentlessly toward our ideals.

Join us. Stay in touch. Take action.

You’ll hear from us again soon! In the meantime, in solidarity,

Cate and the WEDO Team
