Join Women’s Earth Alliance for a special
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY LIVESTREAM EVENT + TREE-PLANTING WORKSHOP
celebrating grassroots women leaders building climate and community resilience.
Planting Trees for Women, Climate and Communities
MONDAY, MARCH 8TH AT 9:30 A.M. PST
As families around the world grapple with the compounding impacts of climate change and COVID-19, grassroots women leaders are energizing a thriving CARE economy with the support of an age-old ally: trees. Not only do trees draw down carbon from the atmosphere (scientists believe that nature-based solutions like healthy forests could reduce one-third of all emissions required by 2030 to meet Paris Agreement targets), tree planting and nurseries are also playing an important role in food security, job creation and income generation in the wake of COVID-19.
WHAT: Planting Trees for Women, Climate + Communities
WHEN: International Women's Day, Monday, March 8 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. PDT / 12:30-1:30 p.m. EDT
WHERE: Virtual livestream—after registering you will receive a confirmation email with information on how to join.
During this workshop we’ll take you through a fun, hands-on tree-planting demonstration, and you’ll hear from Rose Wamalwa and Stella Wanjala, Co-founders of WWANC—WEA’s COVID + Climate Resilience Program partner in Kenya. We’ll discuss the actions women leaders are taking to build community and climate resilience, the impact of tree planting and other climate mitigation measures, and how you can help disrupt the climate crisis.
