Amplifying women & youth initiatives to combat climate change: solutions and best practices (Side Event)

15 March 2022 @ 10:00 - 11:30 EDT

In order to successfully fight the climate and environmental crises, we must center the experiences and solutions of those on the front lines of these crises. Feminist and youth movements from around the world have been mobilizing for climate action and leading climate solutions. Too often, their solutions are not heard in relevant decision-making spaces. In this side-event, feminist and youth-led solutions will be front and center. Their solutions address the needs of young people and future generations, centre human rights and the needs of local communities and their members.

The official side event is co-organised by WECF in collaboration with NL Ministry for Education, Culture, Science, Atria Institute on Gender Equality and Women’s History, Youth Climate Movement NL, UN Women’s Representative of the Netherlands and Fundación Plurales.
