Ten Days of Global Mobilization

This October 28-November 6, 2016, please join diverse women and girls around the world in organizing together to

  • show our resistance to environmental and social degradation;
  • highlight the climate impacts our communities are facing;
  • demand drastic change away from our unjust neoliberal economic and development systems; and
  • demonstrate the many effective, just and safe climate solutions, strategies and political calls that are being implemented by women and girls around the world on a daily basis.

‘Women Act for Climate Justice: Ten Days of Global Mobilization’ is a worldwide call for women and girls to bring light to their climate struggles and solutions by sending in photos and statements; or through escalated actions including (but not limited to) educational events, community projects, protests and marches.

The 2016 ‘Women Act for Climate Justice’ campaign is being called in advance of the November 2016 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – COP22 Conference in Marrakech, Morocco, where we must work together to ensure a sustained civil society presence and pressure to demand that all governments’ road maps ahead originate in a climate justice framework, and with respect to human, Indigenous and women’s rights, and gender, social, economic and ecological justice.

The ‘Women Act for Climate Justice’ decentralized mobilization is intended to show our collective actions and voices in the lead-up to COP22, but also far beyond the UNFCCC.

Join the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network, Women’s Global Call for Climate Justice, and hundreds of global allies as we stand together in resistance, strength and hope.

Level One – Photo and Statement –  Take a photo of yourself and/or a group holding up sign[s] with messages about the climate impacts your community is facing, your solutions, and/or your message to world governments in advance of COP22. We encourage participants to take their action photo at a meaningful location, such as a site of pollution, extraction and profit, or a place of continued struggle, resistance and hope.

Example messages include: “Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground”, ‘Keep the oil in the soil’, ‘No Gender Justice without Climate and Ecological Justice’,”No Climate Justice Without Gender Justice”, “Water is Life”, ‘No Healthy Oceans, no Life”;“Climate Justice Now”, “Women for 100% Renewable Energy”,”#WomenClimateJustice is our name, Resistance is our aim” ‘Communities own seeds, never corporations’, “I’m Fighting for my planet -Let’s connect!”,“System Change, Not Climate Change”.

We want to hear YOUR voice – get creative!
