Volunteer Night – WEDO needs your help with advocacy!
When : Wednesday, September 4th (5:30pm- 8pm)
Where: WEDO Office, 355 Lexington Avenue, 3rd floor
What: Together with the Global Gender and Climate Alliance and the UNFCCC Secretariat, WEDO has just launched a publication containing the gender-responsive language from all agreements in the history of the international climate change negotiations: Gender Equality and The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change: A Compilation of Decision Text.
Our hope is that governments and other stakeholders to the negotiations will use this document as a reference tool to promote policies that address gender inequalities and women’s rights while lessening the impacts of climate change.
To achieve this goal, we need practical assistance with stuffing envelopes to send the publication to delegations that will be attending this year’s Climate Change Conference in Poland (COP19) in November. Getting this document out in large numbers is crucial for informing the policy-makers, and we are hoping for your help.
Pizza will be served during the session, and there will be time to learn about the Friends of WEDO Committee. Please email Ingrid at email@example.com to say if you’re coming. We hope to see you there!
