Last week to apply for Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards!

WECF and the Women and Gender Constituency (WGC) are happy to announce that the call for applications for our annual Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards is now open. 

The Gender Just Climate Solutions Awards are granted every year to grassroots initiatives and organisations tackling the climate crisis while promoting gender equality. These solutions are examples of climate resilient and transformative development models that bring multiple social and environmental benefits. They contribute to raising the ambition for the achievement of the 1.5 degree target by 2030. 

Three winners are selected by a diverse group of jury members following open and transparent criteria, and are announced during an official, high-level ceremony at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP). Award winners receive €2000 as a seed grant, a chance to attend the COP, which will be held in Glasgow this year, and enter our long-term mentoring programme which helps them strengthen and upscale their outstanding actions. Runners-up projects are presented in a written publication, on our online platforms and at the awards ceremony during the COP.

Transformative solutions for a more just, equal and healthy planet

Through these awards, we want to showcase transformative solutions for a more just, equal and healthy planet. If you are part of a climate and gender justice initiative, then apply now. We highly encourage activists, grassroots and women-led organizations and groups to apply.
