Gender Matters in Climate Justice 9 March 2022 - CKMM/RUC International Women's Day event
From Laura Horn
Wednesday 9 March, 13.00-15.30 in building 1, room 01.1-028
In this event for International Womens’ Day 2022, we focus on gender and climate/ecological struggles. There are so many dimensions to be discussed, e.g. gendered impacts of ecological degradation and destruction; gendered mitigation/adaptation policies; climate policies and leadership at various levels; access to and management of resources; challenges and contradictions for female climate activists and grassroot movements; intersectional equality and regenerative justice. We also need to be aware of power relations in knowledge production, and whose voices are being heard. With this event, CKMM provides a platform for students and scholars at RUC to hear important and inspiring contributions and discuss these themes with each other.
The event is in English, and open to anyone who is interested. For questions, please contact Laura Horn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
