Here are some of the delegates to the 100 Women Summit:
The International Women's Earth & Climate Summit was held on September 20 – 23, 2013 in New York. The Summit brought together 100 global women leaders including grassroots activists, economists, scientists, businesswomen, Indigenous leaders, policy-makers, faith leaders, culture shapers for 3.5 days to help further a women’s climate action agenda.
The IWECI Summit was not a one-time event but rather is the beginning of long-term campaigns and projects to embrace climate solutions and build resilient communities. We plan to work in alliance with many other organizations and projects that are already underway as well as create new projects and campaigns when and where appropriate.
From promoting local and ecological food and energy models to advocating for a rights based approach to sustainability, WECAN is dedicated to a future where communities thrive and women are empowered.
In our work, we recognize common but differentiated responsibilities for solving the crisis of global climate change. We intend to build upon models of other movements that were successful in changing the course of history. Most importantly, we need to build this movement together with you!
