ClimateMama is honored to partner with the Women’s Earth And Climate Action Network (WECAN) in the lead up to the next round of global climate talks – COP22 – which will be held in Marrakech, Morocco beginning November 7, 2016. Join us for this exciting opportunity to show the world we are watching what our governments are doing and saying and we are not waiting – we are taking action now. There is room and space for everyone; you can join in as an individual, as part of a group, or as part of an organization or team – no action is too small, nor too large! Find out more below.
According to WECAN, ‘Women Act for Climate Justice — Ten Days of Global Mobilization’ is an opportunity for women and girls from around the world to organize together and show resistance to environmental and social degradation. Examples include: speaking about and taking action to highlight the climate impacts our communities are facing; showcasing resistance struggles which are ongoing or new; and demonstrating the many effective, just and safe climate solutions, strategies and political calls that are being implemented everyday by women and girls around the world.
Your action can be as simple as taking a photo of yourself and your family holding up a sign, messages could include: “Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground”, ‘Keep the oil in the soil’, ‘No Gender Justice without Climate and Ecological Justice’,”No Climate Justice, Without Gender Justice”, “Water is Life”, ‘No Healthy Oceans, no Life”;“Climate Justice Now”, “Women for 100% Renewable Energy”,”#WomenClimateJustice and on, and on…
Another option could be organizing a town-hall meeting, holding vigils and demonstrations, rallies, sit-ins, marches, educational events, art projects, and other actions and statements to showcase local struggles and solutions being offered by women leaders and their communities.
