Best summer greetings. We are writing to you with some important announcements and a special request for your engagement in our work and some volunteer time!
The International Women’s Earth and Climate Summit–From September 20th to 23rd, 2013, 100 global women leaders will convene in New York for a 3.5-day-long Summit. Women from the Global South and Global North, including grassroots activists, economists, scientists, businesswomen, Indigenous leaders, policy-makers, faith leaders, and culture-shapers, will come together to further a women’s climate action agenda. This Summit is not a one-time event, but rather a beginning of long-term campaigns and projects to coordinate women’s voices for our earth and for future generations.
