Day of Advocacy and Action - Women's Global Leadership Conference - Building a Better World: Women and Climate Justice
Connection, Action, Resilience: Agnes Scott’s second annual Women’s Global Leadership Conference creates the opportunity for internationally recognized scholars, community activists, political leaders, and private sector experts to engage in intentional conversations, form innovative partnerships for addressing climate injustice, and develop creative strategies for building more resilient communities.
Women frequently bear the brunt of the social violence, political instability, and environmental degradation caused by climate change but at the same time they are also important change agents in the transition to a more sustainable and just future. With the “Building a Better World” conference Agnes Scott combines its strong commitment to sustainability and its innovative SUMMIT global learning and leadership experience to address the full range of climate-justice experiences of women and other marginalized identities.
The Day of Advocacy and Action is a chance for conference participants and members of the Agnes Scott College community to come together to not only make a difference through direct service but also attend advocacy workshops.
