Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN)
Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.
The Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) was founded in order to facilitate and accelerate the building of a diverse women's climate justice action movement by engaging women as powerful stakeholders in climate education and advocacy, policy, trainings, movement building, and on-the-ground sustainability solutions. WECAN has four guiding principles: Rights of Women, Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Rights of Nature, Rights of Future Generations. WECAN focuses on both the immediate actions and long-term systemic change to the climate crisis and to the root causes of environmental degradation and socio-economic inequalities, working often with Indigenous and frontline women and their communities. WECAN has created numerous opportunities, nationally and globally, for women to become more effective climate leaders and to mobilize and show their resistance efforts, expose false solutions to the climate crisis, demonstrate the many real solutions that are just and equitable, and honor Indigenous and frontline communities.
How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?
I am interested in learning more about the work of conference attendees and exploring networking and collaborations.
What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?
WECAN would love to share our network platform to see if it can support the work of others.
