Women bringing new agendas to COP28: Part One.

Sunday, 1 October 2023 - 11:00am to 11:30am

At a time when the world has moved from global warming to 'global boiling' according to the UN Secretary General, all eyes are on COP 28 (UAE, Dec 2023) for the world to take the actions needed to dramatically reduce carbon emissions. In this Women's Climate Conversation online event WCC founder Janet Salisbury was joined by three women who are bringing ambitious agendas to COP28 to secure the climate: 

Katrin Geyer joined us from London, England and is the Environmental Advisor, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom. She will speak about WILFP's proposal to include military emissions into the COP negotiations.

Anna Reynolds is the Lord Mayor of Hobart will tell us how, with her role as a member of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy (GCoM), she was the first Mayor in the world to pledge support for the Mayors Declaration for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty. 

Natalie Sifuma joined us from Nairobi and is Head of Communications, SHE Changes Climate. She will speak of the push by SCC to secure 50:50 representation of women at all levels of COP negotiations including the Presidency and in all country delegations.  

Earth Matters #1422 was produced by Bec Horridge.
