Women Act for Climate Justice: 10 Days of Global Mobilization

The Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice campaign is co-sponsoring and joining forces with Women Act for Climate Justice: 10 Days of Global Mobilization!

This October 28 – November 6, 2016, join diverse women and girls around the world in organizing together to show our resistance to environmental and social degradation; demand drastic change away from our unjust neoliberal economic and development systems; highlight the climate impacts our communities are facing; and demonstrate the many effective, just and safe climate solutions, strategies and political calls that are being implemented by women and girls around the world on a daily basis.

Women Act for Climate Justice: Ten Days of Global Mobilization’ is a worldwide call for women and girls to bring light to their climate struggles and solutions by sending in photos and a statement, or through escalated actions such as educational events, community projects, protests and marches.

The 2016 ‘Women Act for Climate Justice’ campaign is being called in advance of the November 2016 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – COP22 Conference in Marrakech, Morocco, where we must work together to ensure a sustained civil society presence and pressure to demand that all government’s road map ahead originates in a climate justice framework, and with respect to human, Indigenous and women’s rights, and gender, social, economic and ecological justice. The “Women Act for Climate Justice’ decentralized mobilization is intended to show our collective actions and voices in the lead up to COP22, but also far beyond the UNFCCC.
