Women and The Environment Conference
May 17, 2017 - May 18, 2017$150 - $195
Women and the Environment Conference
featuring Naomi Klein, Award-winning Journalist & Author
The idea for a Women and the Environment conference was informed by the environmental coverage published in Pacific Standard, an award-winning magazine published by the Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media, and Public Policy.
Women around the globe are disproportionately affected by climate change. Twenty-six million people around the globe have been displaced by climate change since 2010; 20 million of those climate refugees — more than 75% of them – are women. But women are not merely victims of climate change: when they are empowered, they are extremely effective agents of adaptation to climate and social change.
Join us on May 18 to meet the women who are shaping the future of our communities, and our planet with unrivaled insight and experience in the field.
The first Women and the Environment conference will be held in Santa Barbara, California – the birthplace of the modern environmental movement, Earth Day.
This dynamic event is for changemakers who want to establish new partnerships and be effective agents of adaptation to climate and social change. Join us to hear and pursue new perspectives and models to redress today’s challenges and achieve successful outcomes. The Conference will culminate with selection of three ‘big ideas,’ generated by conference attendees, for seed capital investment to support further development.
