Global Women Take Action on Climate Change Climate Week NYC
During Climate Week in NYC, Global Women leaders focused on ways in which women around the world are providing leadership and organizing their communities in confronting the devastating human impacts of climate change. As a young woman environmentalist, it was so inspiring to be around Global women leaders who already are stewards in a global issue in need of immediate global action.
Carol Jenkins, President of the Women’s Media Center, welcomed 60 high-profile guests from media, policy, government, business, NGOS and entertainment on behalf of the TckTckTck campaign. Speakers included: Mary Robinson, first woman President of Ireland, TckTckTck Climate Witnesses Sharon Hanshaw, Executive Director, Coastal Women for Change, Constance Okollet, Chairperson, Osukura United Women, Ursula Rakova, Executive Director, Tulele Peisa, and Ulamila Kurai Wragg, Head of Climate Change Team, WAVE.
