Questioning the Paris Agreement in Feminist Pathways towards a Just and Equitable Transition
This interactive session aims to bring the analysis and stories of resistance and resilience of grassroots women leaders and feminist advocates from across regions, struggles and generations who are directly confronting the human rights impacts as well as the structural drivers of the climate crisis and other intersecting crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic. The speakers will discuss feminist visions emerging from peoples’ movements, consider the relevance of the Paris Agreement in this context, and discuss strategies, solutions and alternatives towards shaping a healthy and equitable future.
