Accelerator for Grassroots Women Environmental Leaders
The 2020 Women's Earth Alliance Indonesia Grassroots Accelerator is an opportunity to gain the skills, tools, knowledge, and networks that women need to accelerate their impact.
We are working with women leaders who are ready to grow or scale their grassroots environmental and climate initiatives. They've already driven impact through their project/initiative and are well-positioned to take it to the next level, drawing on the skills, alliances, expanded audience, and range of resources offered by this unique national Accelerator.
Indonesian women are working in one or more of these interconnected sectors or strategies with the goal of scaling their initiatives
WEA Women in Indonesia are accelerating the impact of their existing projects in these intersectional areas and beyond:
Forest and Coastal Ecosystem Protection
Regenerative Food Systems
Land and Water Rights
Environmental Science and Innovation
Education for Sustainability
Plastic Pollution and Waste Solutions
Together we will amplify the women leaders:
As a national cohort, we will generate measurable and sustained improvements to our global environment, economies, and communities by strengthening and unifying women’s climate initiatives.
Accelerator participants will join a national and global network of grassroots, environmental leaders, gaining access to new funding, best practices, allies, and visibility.
Accelerator participants will gain skills in professional development, leadership, entrepreneurship, advocacy, communications, and technical solutions from global facilitators, regional experts, and cohort peers.
The Accelerator cohort includes leaders nominated by organizations from across Indonesia. Leaders participate in a four-month interactive, virtual curriculum that is collaborative, hands-on, and non-extractive. Content includes webinars, group video calls, sector-specific working groups, mentorship, and a “Collaboratory,” focused on peer learning and sharing of working models.
