Connexions Calendar

Roundtable on the Research and Practice of Women's Participation and Leadership in Climate Solutions

June 21, 2018

Greater economic, infrastructure and employment and health disparities make women more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. And when given the opportunity to participate and influence policy and programs, they are also key agents of change for social, economic and environmental sustainability across sectors ranging from agriculture to governance to natural resources to energy. This roundtable will examine the barriers that currently exist for women's (and other marginalized populations) participation as well as the opportunities and actionable methods for greater participation and leadership in climate solutions. The organizing questions include: What would it look like if there was gender equity and fully inclusive participation in your sector to take action on climate change? What innovative methods of inclusion and participation would you scale up to address climate solutions?

Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Venue: Wosk Centre for Dialogue, Simon Fraser University
Location: 580 West Hastings Street Vancouver, BC
