Our 6th presentation at our annual forum, “Contemporary Women’s Issues,” on 13 April:
Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability: Powerful Synergy
The connection between gender equality and environmental sustainability has only recently been made, in a report by UNDP and an index by IUCN. This presentation will: (1) Define gender equality, environmental sustainability, and “green economy”; (2) Explain the links between them; (3) Highlight some of the barriers in tackling this issue in a global context; (4) Provide examples of pockets of action that have occurred across the world to address gender equality and environmental sustainability with particular focus on the link between the two; (5) Discuss local issues/examples; and, (6) Propose a practicum and what we may do in advocacy for gender-equal representation in environmental policymaking.
