HAF INVITATION FOR WECAN EVENT 14 NOVEMBER

Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change – Marrakech

Join the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network on November 14, 2016 for Women Leading Solutions on the Frontlines of Climate Change, an extraordinary gathering with worldwide women leaders joined in solidarity to speak out against environmental and social injustice, draw attention to root causes of the climate crisis, and present the diverse array of visions and strategies with which they are working to shape a healthy and equitable world.

This event is organized with the conviction that real forward movement towards climate justice depends on the full and equal participation of women in all stages of decision making and implementation, and that real change will come from women mobilizing and taking action at the local, national, and international level. Women have always been on the frontlines, now it is time for them to be at the forefront.

HafFdtn We are just happy to share and plant some trees – particularly walnut that can live 500 years. https://t.co/zq291Akh5I

HafFdtn The regional integration approach promotes trade within a restricted geographic area.
HafFdtn HAF will do its very best to give back to rural Moroccan communities by encouraging their sustainable development. Best, Kerstin
HafFdtn Witnessing poverty, generosity and peacefulness in mind, keeps me thinking, how much I take for granted and don’t appreciate as I should.
HafFdtn The revenue from nuts will help farmers to overcome subsistence agriculture and poverty and will promote sustainable development projects.
HafFdtn Almond trees can live longer than a century, and walnut more than four centuries.
HafFdtn Once mature, every walnut tree will increase the farmer’s yearly income by $300 and every almond tree by $15.
HafFdtn Unemployment is highest among young in Morocco, with 33% of 15-to-24-year-olds and 26% of 25-to-34-year-olds unemployed (MPI Report, 2008).
