Women Act for Climate Justice: Ten Days of Global Mobilization
The Clean Coalition was a partner organization for this event, which took place from October 28 to November 6, 2016.
The Clean Coalition was a partner organization for the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network’s ‘Women Act for Climate Justice: Ten Days of Global Mobilization,’ which took place from October 28 to November 6, 2016.
Women and girls around the world organized together to show their resistance to environmental and social degradation; highlighted the climate impacts communities are facing; demanded drastic change away from unjust economic and development systems; and demonstrated the many effective, just and safe climate solutions, strategies, and political calls that are being implemented by women and girls around the world on a daily basis.
‘Women Act for Climate Justice: Ten Days of Global Mobilization’ was a worldwide call for women and girls to bring light to their climate struggles and solutions by sending in photos and statements; or through escalated actions including but not limited to educational events, community projects, protests, and marches.
The 2016 campaign was called in advance of the November 2016 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – COP22 Conference in Marrakech, Morocco, where work was done to ensure a sustained civil society presence and pressure to demand that all governments’ road maps ahead originate in a climate justice framework, and with respect to human, Indigenous and women’s rights, and gender, social, economic and ecological justice. The ‘Women Act for Climate Justice’ decentralized mobilization was intended to show the collective actions and voices in the lead up to COP22, but also far beyond the UNFCCC.
Join the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network and hundreds of global allies in standing together in resistance, strength, and hope.
