One Planet, Double Standards: women, climate change and equality

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Hear from women at the forefront of sustainability and environmental policy, locally and internationally.

Climate change is one of our most urgent challenges. From natural disasters to food shortages, women are at greater risk. As the world heats up, we speak to the women on the front lines to find out what part gender equality has to play in action against climate change.

Speakers include Åland Islands politician and activist Carina Aaltonen; Heathrow runway campaigner Sheila Menon; Kate Metcalf, co-director at Women’s Environmental Network; Prof Rosalind Cornforth, Director of the Walker Institute and Africa Climate Exchange.

The panel is chaired by Maria Adebowale-Schwarte, Director of the Living Space Project and Clore Social Leadership Environment Fellow.
