Women and Climate Change
January 21, 2020 @ 5:00pm-7:30pm$18 – $22
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Dr. Edward Cameron to begin GMALL’s yearlong celebration marking 100 years of women’s suffrage. Women are on the frontlines of climate change. Structural discrimination, including economic, social, cultural, political, and legal prejudice amplifies their risk, placing them amongst the most vulnerable populations on earth. However, when these structural barriers are broken down, women become the most powerful architects of a low-carbon, climate-resilient and inclusive world. This talk will explore why climate change leads to asymmetrical impact on women and how gender empowerment is the secret to building a better world for all. We will begin with a cocktail reception at 5:00 p.m., followed by Dr. Cameron’s talk at 6:00 p.m. Registration is $18 in advance or $22 at the door.
