The Green European Foundation is bringing together twenty selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors from across Europe for the sixth and final session of this (online) training program.
About the event
We aim to build bridges across Europe for feminist climate change advocates and activists. This training will equip selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors with the tools needed to get their message through in their region and across their local media, to support sustainable and feminist community-level impact across Europe. In addition, the training provides space for more political-level conversation on the intersections of gender and climate change.
The sixth meeting looks ahead to COP26, exploring the focal points on gender and equality in upcoming climate negotiations and the influencing opportunities that the summit provides. Then, our ambassadors will dive deeper into the topic of ecofeminism and the lessons it holds for their work and activism.
This training is part of the project Feminists in the Climate Movement, organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Visio, the Green Economics Institute, Strefa Zieleni, and Oikos. While the training is for selected participants only, the project also features a webinar series and summer school, which are open to the general public.

13:05 What are the focal points on gender and equality in upcoming climate negotiations? (with Fleur Newman)
13:45 Influencing opportunities and best practices at COP (with Miriam Kennet)
14:15 Ecofeminism Roundtable (with Marie-Monique Franssen and Philsan Osman)
- This roundtable will explore the theories and praxis of ecofeminism. Using their essay ‘Voor wie willen we zorgen?’ (‘Who do we wish to care for?’) as a base, co-authors Philsan Osman and Marie-Monique Franssen will first discuss the fundamentals of intersectional environmentalism and ecofeminism rooted in ethics of care. After this presentation, we will provide a space for a long form, vulnerable & open ended exchange that fosters a dialogue between all the participants.
17:00 End of programme
This event is for selected participants only and will take place online via Zoom and Howspace. Applications for the training programme are now closed.
This project is organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Visio, and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
