Grassroot Women's Conference on Climate Change

GenderCC – Women for Climate Justice will host an international conference of
grassroots women prior to the UNFCCC COP17 on 24th /25th of November 2011 for
exchange and expression of grassroots women’s climate change issues and demands
for COP17. The conference will bring together grassroots women from various world
regions and representatives of development organisations, NGOs, donors and others
working on the issues of gender and climate change.
As countries prepare for the UNFCCC COP 17 and working on their negotiation
positions which in most cases do not consider gendered impacts of climate change and
strategies for mitigation at all, it is time for grassroots women from all over the world
to come together and strengthen their voice. In a concerted action, pressure should
be build up on the negotiating parties to support the claims for a climate change
agreement that takes women’s critical climate change issues wholeheartedly into
account.
Detailed programme of the conference will follow soon.

Please keep posted

Interesting! As the CCMP fellow (http://www.climatemediapartnership.org/2011-fellows/), I will be covering COP17 in Durban. But since this event is outside the main event, I will be missing it. Please do share the updates, maybe I can find something interesting enough for a story later.

Thanks!

Will try and share updates.

Will try and share updates. I think it will interest you to know also that there will be a Trans African caravan leaving from Burundi to Durban on road. I will send the post on WP next week. I and another journalist will be covering the carvan and we will send daily reports on WP.
I hope to see you in Durban. perhaps we could have a WP connect meeting with as many from WP that will be in Durban. It will be nice meeting each other in physically at Durban.
Looking forward to meeting you.

How Wonderful!

I normally get an email notification if there are comments on WP. But I don't know why I didn't get on yours:(

Anyway, I think your idea of catching up with all the WP people is too cool! We can write a few lines here and ask to see who all are planning to visit Durban, what do you say?

In any case, am meeting you for sure! Just the thought itself is making me smile :) :)

And I am very keen on the caravan. Sounds fantastic! Good luck for covering it!

Love!
