Join this webinar for a fascinating feminist discussion about just transition in (post-)coal regions, with speakers from Poland, Germany, and the Czech Republic.
About the Event
What is a just transition of coal regions from the feminist perspective? What does transition look like in Poland and in other European countries? Do the current solutions ensure equal participation of men and women in decision-making processes? What role do women play in the broader just transition movement? In which approach to transformation is the gender perspective particularly relevant?
These and other questions will be answered by politicians and activists from Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany.
This is the second of four public webinars as part of the project “Feminists in the Climate Movement,” organised by GEF with the support of Visio, Green Economics Institute, Oikos, and Fundacja Strefa Zieleni. With a closed training programme for selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors as well as a series of public events, the project seeks to build capacity among (potential) climate leaders, while highlighting the gendered aspects and impacts of the climate crisis to a broader audience.
