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

Tuesday, June 21st
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. Science tells us that we need to preserve 50% of Earth’s land and oceans and transition to regenerative agriculture to stay below the dangerous threshold of 1.5°C in global average temperature rise. 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.

Daughters for Earth: Women and the Climate Change Movement Panel | Bioneers 2022

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. Furthermore, climate change and physical and psycho-spiritual health are almost always discussed as separate issues, but the personal and the political, the heart and the mind are not just interconnected, they are all one. 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. With: Zainab Salbi, co-founder, Daughters for Earth; Nina Simons, co-founder, Bioneers; Justin Winters, co-founder and Executive Director, One Earth; Kahea Pacheco, Co-Director, Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA); Helena Gualinga, co-founder of Polluters Out.

'Life Lived Wild' with Rick Ridgeway | Utah

Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30pm MT
One Earth chair Rick Ridgeway calculates that he’s spent more than five years of his life sleeping in tents: Whether at elevation or raising a family at sea level, those years taught him, he writes in his new book Life Lived Wild, “to distinguish matters of consequence from matters of inconsequence.” Some of his adventures made news: the first American ascent of K2; the first traverse of Borneo; the first crossing on foot of a corner of Tibet so remote no outsider had ever seen it. In the book, he also describes his journey from an outdoor adventurer to an unlikely environmental activist. Listen to the latest interview with Utah Public Radio below. On Tuesday, May 10th, 6:30pm MT, the Salt Lake City Patagonia store will host Rick Ridgeway for a presentation on his new book - RSVP required.
