As women’s lives and well-being continue to be disproportionately impacted by ongoing violence, injustice and oppression, and as the Earth and her inhabitants suffer from the impacts of environmental degradation, interfaith peacebuilders are engaging these critical issues on a global and local scale.
This session will explore these issues through on-the-ground examples and invite participants into dialogue around strategies for women’s empowerment and environmental sustainability.
Justice for the Earth is justice for women.
