Description: Climate justice needs women’s voices, experience, and leadership. Women’s Learning Partnership is bringing together thought-leaders on climate justice and women’s rights to discuss the role of women and youth in confronting the climate crisis. Women have suffered the greatest from natural disasters, loss of arable land, and forced migration, and have been on the forefront of working towards sustainable solutions. Join us for a lively and thought-provoking discussion and poetry reading about the nexus between the fight for climate justice and addressing political, social, and economic inequalities.
