Join us for the third in a series of online meetings on green policies and gender equality. This time, we will discuss climate change, climate justice, mitigation, and adaptation policies within the context of feminism and gender equality.
About the Event
This meeting will welcome activists, NGO representatives, and other interested participants to explore the climate crisis and its relation to gender equality. We experience the consequences of the climate crisis in all areas of our daily lives because of extreme climate events and disasters in every part of the world. We are aware of the urgency to produce policies sufficiently addressing climate change. For this reason, we know that discussions on climate justice, mitigation and adaptation debates would be incomplete without addressing gender equality. Our open discussion will focus on three fundamental questions:
- What could be the steps to ensure gender-based climate justice, particularly in Turkey?
- How could we better communicate the common struggles of the climate and gender equality movements?
- What is the role of NGOs and civil society in climate feminism?
This is the third of five meetings as part of the Feminist Policies in Green Politics project, where we will delve into different policy areas to strengthen European feminist politics in energy, economics, climate policies, ecology and food & agriculture. Our goal is to identify the difficulties in these areas and compile empowering policy recommendations. Besides these webinars, the project also features a series of Green Feminist Talks (podcasts) where we will hear more from inspiring activists and politicians across Europe.
