Environmental Injustice: Women and Climate Change
Climate change is a global crisis, but its effects are not evenly distributed. Women, especially those in developing countries, are disproportionately affected by climate disruption. This means they are also a major part of the solution. This session brings together sustainability experts with diverse backgrounds--including government, NGOs, CSR, and the media--to explore this issue in depth. This panel will discuss the reasons for this disparity, and why equality is ultimately good for the planet.
