Global Greengrants Fund

Global Greengrants Fund promotes social justice and environmental sustainability. Because gender equality is an intrinsic element of environmental and social justice, we aim to more directly integrate it into our grantmaking strategies that address natural resource management, mitigation of environmental degradation, and the creation of adaptive responses to climate change. This means that our advisors in the field who are making grant decisions are supporting organizations that are working to provide equal access to resources and decision making processes. We also recognize that women are disproportionately impacted by climate change, and while grassroots women leaders are waging successful struggles to protect their communities, lands, and human rights, they are often excluded from decision-making processes about climate change responses, impacts and prevention; and policies and institutions that set development priorities and climate change mitigation and adaptation plans. Global Greengrants is therefore prioritizing making grants to organizations that support women in their efforts to mitigate or adapt to climate change. In addition to our own strategies, we want to help increase grassroots funding for women and the environment within the philanthropic community and amplify grassroots women’s voices in shaping donor agendas. Activities: • Engage advisors in regional gender discussions and develop grantmaking strategies for each regional advisory board that include a gender component • Coordinator retreat with specific focus on grantmaking with a gender lens • Create alliances and collaborate on grantmaking strategies with women’s funds via the International Network of Women’s Funds. • Develop a specific section on GGF website for “women’s voices” • Identify ways grantees can provide GGF with information on gender-related issues via grantee reports Goals: • 50% of total annual grants made by Global Greengrants Fund will have a specific focus on the links between gender and the environment. • New funds raised for gender and the environment • Increased advisor knowledge and awareness about relationship between gender and the environment, mostly in terms of disproportionate impact on women • Global Greengrants becomes “go-to” organization within grantmaking community for knowledge on gender and the environment Key successes include the following: 1) Developed a Women and Environment Giving Circle to raise more funds for gender and environment related grants within Global Greengrants Fund. 2) Hosted Summit on Women and Climate in Bali in August 2014 for 100 women and environmental funders and grassroots women in collaboration with the International Network of Women’s Funds. 3) Produced (in conjunction with the International Network of Women’s Funds) Climate Justice and Women’s Rights: A Guide to Directing More Resources to Grassroots Women – a publication for funding at the intersection of gender and climate. 4) Hosted multiple publication launch events in the United States, Mexico, and the United Kingdom about the gendered impacts of climate change. Additional goals: 1) Breaking down silos among grantmakers and cultivating collaborations between environmental and women’s funds to develop more holistic grantmaking strategies addressing climate change. 2) Exploring developing a resource for policymakers involved in climate financing (specifically the Green Climate Fund) that could direct them to funding opportunities they might not otherwise know of (ex. grassroots climate projects headed up by women). 3) Exploring ways in which we can help our grantees develop increased access to those financial or governmental bodies that will be distributing the resources from the Green Climate Fund, and help them understand the revenue streams, and possible opportunities for funding.

The Science & Environmental Health Network

The Science & Environmental Health Network (http://sehn.org/) is a practical, visionary think tank in service to the environmental and climate justice movements. SEHN works to change public policy by equipping community organizations, institutions and government agencies with the tools to implement precautionary policies that protect their communities, our health, environment and climate. SEHN’s transformative work challenges the central question of environmental policy – from “How much risk is allowable?” to “How can we prevent harm and suffering and foster health, wholeness and beauty?” We encourage the adoption of paradigm-shifting concepts like law for an ecological age, the rights of future generations, the law of the commons, and the ecological basis for health and disease, into policy-making and the public conversation. The work of the Women’s Congress for Future Generations, a project of SEHN, is to lift up a whole register of women’s voices that are missing from the cultural conversation about our future. We are women-led and inclusive and welcoming of all gender identities as contributors and participants in our work. Our Second Women's Congress was held November 2014. Here are links to some of the work that came out of that event, which include “An Owl Economy”, “A Declaration of the Rights Held by All Waters”, and “Heartland and Headwaters: Illuminating Possibilities and Pathways for Growing a Civil Rights Movement for Future Generations”: http://sehn.org/the-2014-womens-congress-documents/

In response to the U.S. oil and gas rush, SEHN has also compiled "Some Legal Principles for Mining, Fracking, and Pipelines: Defending Our Communities and Future Generations": http://sehn.org/sign-on-legal-principles/. SEHN and the Women’s Congress for Future Generations will host a gathering of activists in Minneapolis to introduce the legal principles and organizing tools outlined in a ”Women's Congress Companion for Political Change" (materials forthcoming, August 1st, 2015).

No Planeta B

Dear Women's Earth & Climate Action Network, Our New Campaign is called: Cut The RED Tape Project! A multilateral approach to raising awareness on Climate Change, action commitment to Sustainability and calling on political climate action in Paris through schools, students, parents and their communities. It is our hope to engage schools to sign the Schools Act-On-Climate Declaration , get parent involvement by signing the Parents Act-On-Climate Declaration, and bring an ACT-ON-CLIMATE petition signed by "ALL" to COP21 leaders and Christiana Figueres, UNFCCC Executive Secretary to be presented in Paris at a special COP21 side-event. We did a similar thing here in Lima and it was quite successful but in a much smaller scale (See here). We firmly believe that by joining forces we can reduce the noise and increase the VOICE. We are blessed to count with the Climate Reality Project, the Global Issues Network, Climate Mamma, The Association of American Schools in South America, iMATTER, Moms Clean Air Force, and many other but would love also to count with you, WECAN, as one of our partners for many reasons; the main being, we all want the same thing: a healthy/Clean world and to stop Climate change for our children! I truly believe all of us together we can Act-On-Climate & Cut The RED Tape! I hope we can schedule a call later on to find future collaboration opportunities. In the meantime, please visit our website at : www.CutTheREDTapeProject.org and follow the conversation in social media with this #CutTheREDTape @NoPlanetaB both in twitter & Facebook. Also, please visit, sign and share our petition here: http://j.mp/CUTtheREDTape You can reach me at Yoca@NoPlanetaB.org and I will gladly send you more information. Have a great day!
