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.
