Background

The Women's Earth & Climate Action Network (WECAN International) has called for this worldwide women’s climate mobilization in light of the December 2015 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP21, where world governments will work towards finalizing a climate agreement that will have profound impacts on our global trajectory. As a network of women for climate justice, we can and must stand up and act together to show public officials that the time has come to listen to the people's call for equitable, immediate, and bold action on climate change.

This Day of Action is an opportunity for women to mobilize and show our resistance efforts, expose false solutions to the climate crisis, demonstrate the many real solutions that are just and equitable, and honor frontline communities. Women are central to climate solutions and we want to show this as powerfully and colorfully as possible.

On September 29th worldwide allies are invited to hold local actions, which we will weave together via social media, shared images/videos, and print and digital news. 

We have organized this mobilization for September 29th due to the UN General Assembly taking place in New York City at this time. Many heads of state and public officials will be gathered, making this is a potent moment for women to collectively hold actions to have our voices heard. WECAN International will host a hub event and action in New York directly across from the United Nations - 'Women Speak: Climate Justice On The Road To Paris & Beyond'.
