The next Women’s Environmental Network Forum will discuss the role of women’s empowerment in creating sustainable cities.
The event will celebrate the launch of the second edition of Why Women Will Save The Planet. The book - produced in collaboration with C40 Cities and Sustain member Friends of the Earth - argues that big cities don’t have to mean a dystopian future: “They can be turned around to be powerhouses of well-being and environmental sustainability – if we empower women.”
Speakers at the event include Leonie Cooper, Chair GLA Environment Committee, Liz Hutchins, Director of Campaigning Impacts at Friends of the Earth and Dr Sherilyn MacGregor from the University of Manchester.
The Women’s Environmental Network are a member of Sustain. The WEN Forum will be held Tuesday 13 March 6-9pm at Amnesty International UK Human Rights Action Centre, 17-25 New Inn Yard, London EC2A 3EA. Tickets to the event can be purchased here.
Sustain runs the Sustainable Food Cities Network which helps people and places share challenges, explore practical solutions and develop best practice on key food issues.
