The new generation of women climate leaders
Static Preview

Mayors, entrepreneurs, innovators, students, scientists, dreamers and doers, there are many roles to play in shaping the world of tomorrow. The question that C40s Women4Climate initiative tackles is how do you empower individuals to think and act in a fundamentally different way? Through a global mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities; they aim influence the conversation through leadership events and create new momentum and interest among future leaders.

“Women make up more than half the world’s population, and although they are often disproportionately impacted by climate change, their voices are not always heard due to lack of inclusion and representation at the decision-making level. Now more than ever, enhancing women’s participation and leadership in the conversation around climate action will be critical to securing a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for us all” (Women4Climate).

How do you empower the next generation of women to lead climate action and justice globally? Watch this session to find out!

How empowering women and girls can help stop global warming with Katharine Wilkinson
Static Preview

If we really want to address climate change, we need to make gender equity a reality, says writer and environmentalist Katharine Wilkinson. As part of Project Drawdown, Wilkinson has helped scour humanity's wisdom for solutions to draw down heat-trapping, climate-changing emissions: obvious things like renewable energy and sustainable diets and not so obvious ones, like the education and empowerment of women. In this informative, bold talk, she shares three key ways that equity for women and girls can help stop global warming. "Drawing down emissions depends on rising up," Wilkinson says.

What Gender Reconciliation Looks Like by Cynthia Brix
Static Preview

Will Keepin & Cynthia Brix - Transforming Patriarchy: From Gender Oppression to Beloved Community Watch their full talk here.

The Gender Equity and Reconciliation process (GRI) seeks to heal the profound wounds around gender, sexuality, and relational intimacy. It brings together people of all sexual orientations and genders to jointly confront gender disharmony to reach healing reconciliation. Will and Cynthia have developed the method over 24 years, introducing the practices in nine countries. Gender reconciliation's startling successes in South Africa have played a role in transforming that country's AIDS and HIV policies, and exciting new academic research on the program is underway at two South African universities.

This speech was given at the 2016 National Bioneers Conference.
