The Green European Foundation is bringing together feminist climate activists, changemakers, herstory influencers and community leaders for the first webinar in our Feminist Climate Ambassadors training program.


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.
