Women’s Crucial Role In Combating Climate Change

  Women’s Crucial Role In Combating Climate Change  Since the Beijing Women’s Conference in 1995, women have been striving for more opportunities to manage natural resources and to safeguard the environment. Today, unequal access to education and health care persists, further reducing women’s agency with this issue. As a result, we’ve seen worsening climate pollution that disproportionately impacts women.     Jan Dietrick , founder of Citizens’ Climate Lobby Ventura, will speak about women in climate leadership and stewardship, the education of girls as a climate action, climate literacy, and the carbon tax policy designed to help women and other vulnerable communities.   Citizens’ Climate Lobby  is an international grassroots organization fighting climate change. Political will does not start with politicians but with us. CCL creates political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power.   By building relationships with Congress, CCL seeks bipartisan legislation to reduce greenhouse gases, grow the economy, and save lives.

The Ventura County Women's Forum Collaborative is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to empowering Ventura County women around the 12 critical areas of concern outlined at the Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995: Poverty, Education, Health, Violence, Economic Justice, Power Sharing, Institutional Mechanisms, Human Rights, Media, Peace, Environment, and the Girl-Child. These concerns were reviewed and reinstated at the Beijing + 15 Conference in New York, 2010, and the Beijing + 16 Conference (New York, 2011).

Between 2006 and 2012, we held five major, full-day forums with broad community attendance. In the Fall of 2013, we introduced a new format to provide a vehicle for our many member organizations to host single topic, 60 minute presentations on subjects related to our stated issues through a gender lens.
