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

ways to engage

Joint advocacy

Together with those part of our network, 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 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.

How do you become a member?

We are glad to engage with new ecofeminist network members. Network members for us are allies who share a common vision of gender-just sustainable development, and who are civil society women, feminist and women-led environment organisations or movements. You can apply to become a member through completing the following form.

If you are NOT from a non-governmental organisation working for women’s rights in the frame of sustainable development, then we are not the right network for your organisation. Instead, we encourage you to sign up to our newsletter for the latest updates of our activities.
