Join us for a dynamic afternoon full of speakers, green community vendors, musis, organic food, artists, and activists!!
The First Annual Special Assembly will feature a panel discussion with experts from the fields of academia, politics and activism. The following topics will be addressed: how and why women are most severely affected by climate change and natural disasters, the impact under-representation has on women and decision-making processes, identification of gender sensitive strategies and affective actions in response to climate change.
Local sustainable businesses, community groups and non-profits, who are dedicated to sustainability and minimizing the impact of climate change on women, will showcase their products and ideas. Delicious, healthy, organic food selections from premier local vegetarian, vegan and slow food restaurants will be served (bring your own utensils.) The shared meal will provide an opportunity to discuss how food fits in our discussion of women, climate change and human rights.
Participants attending this event will be able to connect with leading researchers, experts and activists in the fields of climate change and human rights. Attendants will leave with an awareness of global conditions and will be inspired to take action locally.
