Educational Centre Visio’s and Green European Foundation’s project Feminists in the Climate Movement culminates in a training programme for 29 feminist climate advocates around Europe.
On Saturday, December 12th, the second webinar of this Feminist Climate Ambassadors -online training will once again gather together the participants to the training and top experts from around the world. Whereas on the first webinar (link) the focus was on introducing the subject as well as the current media- and political environment on the intersections of climate crisis and gender equality, this week the ambassadors will gain concrete tools for carrying out their own activism, with a particular emphasis on different opportunities on social media.
The second training day will end with a roundtable discussion, where experts from different fields will get together to discuss how the feminist approach should influence the climate policy.
