The Feminists in the Climate Movement project aims to promote the growth of the green feminist movement across Europe.
About the project
In 2020, given Finland’s leading example in women’s participation in politics, GEF and its Finnish partner implemened a project sharing experiences and supporting the growth of the green feminist movement across Europe. This was a European pilot project, aimed at women and non-binary persons in Europe, ranging from activists, social media influencers, politicians, to first timers in changemaking.
Building on a successful pilot in 2020 with the first generation of Feminist Climate Ambassadors, this project will create a transnational training programme for feminists in the climate movement. The course will consist of two components exclusive to the candidates: participatory online training, and a study trip to either the COP26 in Glasgow, or to Brussels. In addition, the course includes webinars and round tables – also open to the wider audience – which dive more in-depth into the different aspects of the climate crisis and gender equality. The course aims to build safer spaces, where feminists can learn tactics, share their experiences and network with others fighting for a sustainable future. International experts will provide participants with training on capacity-building, movement-building and campaign strategies and a booklet will be produced on Ecofeminism in the 2020s.
