The Green European Foundation is bringing together feminist climate activists, changemakers, herstory influencers and community leaders for the second webinar in our Feminist Climate Ambassadors training program.
About this Event:
On Saturday, December 12th, the second webinar of this Feminist Climate Ambassadors online training will once again gather together the participants to the training and top experts from around the world.
Whereas in the first webinar the focus was on introducing the subject as well as the current media- and political environment on the intersections of climate crisis and gender equality, this week the ambassadors will gain concrete tools for carrying out their own activism, with a particular emphasis on different opportunities on social media.
The second training day will end with a roundtable discussion, where experts from different fields will get together to discuss how the feminist approach should influence the climate policy.
Our aim is to build bridges across Europe for feminist climate change advocates and activists. This 9-week training will equip selected Feminist Climate Ambassadors with the tools needed to get their message through in their own region and media. This will support sustainable and feminist community-level impact across the region. In addition, the training provides space for more political level conversation on the intersections of gender and climate change.
