As COP26 has drawn to a close in Glasgow, many promises have been made, from commitments to end deforestation to pledges of achieving “net zero” emissions by 2050. But what do these promises really mean? Will they be enough to mitigate the devastating effects of the ecological crisis? And how have feminist, anti-militarist perspectives featured in this year’s much anticipated COP? Speakers who attended the climate summit in Scotland from WILPF Sections as well as from CODEPINK will assess outcomes of COP in a public webinar on Sunday, 21 November. Join the conversation online and learn from women activists about the steps that are required for building a world based on climate justice, gender equality and feminist peace.
