Women and Adolescent Girls as Key Actors in Climate Action
October 27 @ 12:30 - 15:00
Women and adolescent girls as key actors in climate action!
How do we ensure that women and adolescent girls get the opportunity to use their insights and experiences from the local context to take a lead in climate action?
How do we ensure that women are placed solidly at the centre of climate action?
How do we ensure that women get real opportunities to make their own choices and to access rights and justice for themselves and for the coming generations?
This conference gathers researchers, activists and policymakers to discuss concrete actions leading to climate justice, gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
Come to UN City and hear from Dan Jørgensen, Minister for Development Cooperation and Global Climate Policy; Zainab Yunusa, Climate justice advocate; Mette Boye, Conservation Director at WWF Verdensnaturfonden; Sally Dijkerman, researcher at IPAS; Ulla Müller, Director of UNFPA Nordic Office; Torben Huss, CEO at IFU; Marianne Bigum, MP, and others! The conference is moderated by Heather McMulllen.
Organised by UNFPA, the UN Sexual and Reproductive Health Agency, Sex & Samfund, and WWF Verdensnaturfonden.
Lunch will be served!
