Wed 22 March 2017, 18:30 – 21:30 GMT
What’s gender got to do with climate change?
About the evening:
Women's rights and climate change are inextricably linked. We will be exploring these questions and more:
Why climate change is not gender neutral?
Why women aren't equally involved in the solutions to tackle climate change?
Why women are more affected by climate change?
How can we nurture women's leadership in climate change movements?
The evening will include refreshments, networking and a Q&A session. We will also have a Stall Zone, including Friends of the Earth, Real Nappies for London, Women's Equality Party and many more... Come join the conversation!
