Daughters for Earth: Raising Capital and Awareness for Women on the Frontlines of Change

Tuesday, June 21st at 12PM - 12:30PM CEST
Droughts, floods, and extreme temperatures disproportionately affect women, as women and girls in developing economies rely more on agricultural work and carry the burden of gathering food, fuel, and water.

It’s achievable — but only if we support women around the world with capital and training. This panel with Zainab Salbi and Kristina Liliana Nova introduces Daughters for Earth, a new campaign from One Earth designed to mobilize women around the world to engage in climate action through storytelling and philanthropy at scale.

Saturday, May 14th
Women all over the globe, especially in the “developing world,” are the ones who most often bear the brunt of having to contend with the radical disruptions visited upon their families and communities by climate change and environmental degradation, yet women’s voices are far too often ignored.

In this session, a panel of leading women activists explores the impact of climate change on women and how to assure their full inclusion in all climate solutions, how these struggles relate to the personal search for healing, and what it will take to create authentic global change.
