Women Rising for Climate Justice a Day of Action

“Women Rising for Climate Justice – A Day of Action” at Kulunu Vehi (SHE Building) 3rd Floor, on 13 February 2014 at 8:30pm.

VoW is joining WECAN (Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network) to take action for Climate Justice in collaboration with One Billion Rising for Justice.

WECAN International is a global women’s earth and climate action movement whose goal is to stop the escalation of climate change and environmental and community degradation, while accelerating the implementation of sustainability solutions through women’s empowerment, partnerships, hands-on trainings, advocacy campaigns, and political, economic, social and environmental action.

We wish to emphasise the impacts of climate change on Maldivian women, highlight potential adaptation and mitigation strategies that can be implemented to reduce the detrimental impacts, and raise awareness amongst the community about this critical issue which must be addressed from a domestic, as well as a global level. We further wish to highlight the importance of men acknowledging the issue and joining us in our efforts.

The event will also be dedicated to the signing of WECAN’s (Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network) Declaration, “Women of the World Call for Urgent Action on Climate Change & Sustainability Solutions” (http://wecaninternational.org/declaration).
