We build on our recent partner event as the response has been overwhelming and many people who attended have asked to do more with us. We will explore the nature of what we can do together and network more in this exciting event.

Blending science narratives, knowledge and information for policy makers and media.

With the need for immediate climate action stronger than ever, we are bringing together actors from civil society, politics, activism, and academia to determine what climate leadership looks like in 2020 and what strategies, messages, and objectives will propel us forward.

This conference will act as a climate networking event – with exchanges across a variety of different thinkers, topics, and backgrounds, in order to provide everyone with resources and connections in the run up to the United Nations Conferences in 2021 and to the SB52 and Bonn Conferences and COP26 Glasgow 2021, and further climate negotiations

We will also IPBES Conferences on the devastation of the natural world.

We will look at the effect of the pandemic and also the pandemic on the climate.

The day will include updates from science on the latest earth vital signs and also from anecdotal visits to our teams in different parts of the world and how they are seeing climate impacts locally and we will link to them so particpants can ask questions and see how the impacts are universal and similar in many different parts of the world. We will also consider the effect on peoples and consider climate justice.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,

The rewriting of history and fact is connected- it turns out that it was women that put men on the moon- women who did the calculation, women who worked out the maths for computers, women who have done so much. Women even invented climate science and quite possibly maths itself as well as the technology for computers, nuclear physics and so much more- why are we written out of history?

We need to take back control of these narratives as the earth and nature cannot wait. In the name of domestication, profit, wealth? and greed- we have even had control of child birth removed from us. So called nature based solutions and ecosystems servives are the latest attempt to remove anything natural from the world. Climate feminists need to reclaim these narratives and try and stop runnaway climate change before its too late and take their lead from the most famous climate activist of all -Greta!

However men continue to claim the credit and rule the narratives of what is needed and what is the future. Men currently control the econmy and the narratives around it- most importantly they control all the budgets, pensions and so much more- and the history and archaeology narratives about what counts and what has mattered in human developments.

There is an epidemic of gender violence, Womens issues have gone back 50 years- Even though the SDGs have at least 3 aims to help women- the womens issue is consistently ignored everywhere from COP leadership at COP26 to the Green Deal, to the UN experts -the women issue is all but ignored. However is in fact women who are leading on climate change- and we need to sort this out for all our sakes.
