A note on WECAN process:

WECAN works globally, recognizing that working with women from both developing and developed countries is essential. We believe that women from the Global North are especially urgently challenged with the responsibility to dramatically reduce consumption and increase energy efficiency and conservation while advocating for a global sustainable energy transition. 

Similarly, women in the Global South are often at the frontlines of the impacts of climate change, while also facing the ongoing need to bring their communities out of poverty. One of their challenges is to mitigate the impacts of climate change, implement adaptation strategies and meet their development needs while also keeping their carbon footprint low (which in many cases already is low) and efficiency as high as possible.

WECAN hopes to directly address these dual challenges with the key contributions of women leaders from both the North and South, from grassroots to governments, from earth-caring businesses to academia, coming from diverse backgrounds and areas of expertise to stop and reverse the rise in global temperature and to develop sustainable societies. We recognize that we all need to work together while finding and implementing solutions that are specific to region and culture.
