A Grassroots Feminist Path to Climate Justice
This is a critical moment for climate action, and time to act urgently to confront the global climate crisis. All over the world women and gender-oppressed leaders are advancing feminist analysis from the grassroots, to build alternative visions for a feminist and regenerative economy. Climate breakdown disproportionately impacts women, girls, gender non-conforming and LGBTIQ people across the world. In this assembly we share critical visions for feminist action for climate justice like the Feminist Agenda for a Green New Deal, the Feminist Peace Initiative, and the World March of Women, which lay the path to rights-based and gender-just approaches to redress climate injustices, address the root causes of climate change, and advance a just transition to a regenerative economy. We will provide space for frontline and grassroots feminist leaders and advocates to discuss how feminist analysis must shape climate policies, how feminist climate solutions can pave the way to a more just future, and what feminist climate voices demand of global climate solutions.
