We empower local civil society organisations in their work towards a gender just sustainable future.

ways to engage

Joint advocacy

Together with our network members we advocate for women’s rights and protecting women and environmental rights defenders, for gender- responsive sustainable development policies, legal frameworks, decent and safe work, solidarity economy and fair tax and funding mechanisms. We facilitate the participation of partners in advocacy process with capacity building, travel support and accreditation to international policy meetings. We coordinate joint shadow reports and independent monitoring of policies and programs. We support global advocacy networks of women and feminist movements such as the Women and Gender Constituency on climate, and the Women’s Major Group on environment and sustainable development.

Joint projects

We respond to network members' requests for joint implementation projects that either aim at reducing inequalities and unsustainable activities, and or that aim at showing good practices of women leadership and environmental sustainability, such as our gender-just climate solutions program, the creation of sustainable energy cooperatives and the safe reuse of waste for energy and food services. We provide capacity building and training sessions and tools for gender-responsive sustainable technologies and social business development. We facilitate cooperation with knowledge institutes and technical assistance networks such as universities and the climate technologies center network.

Joint outreach

We share information and experiences amongst our network partners on our list-serves and social media and via our newsletters. We coordinate joint campaigns for awareness raising in multiple languages around key policy and awareness raising events such as the world days on menstrual hygiene. We provide training tools and sessions on effective campaigning, outreach and (social) media.
