Launching today at the annual global event for the World Humanitarian Forum, COPXX is challenging women everywhere to align and promote the values of care, nurture and love for the planet in the run-up to COP26 in November.
We need to gauge whether the activities of leaders and policymakers are sufficiently ambitious to deliver for women and future generations. To do this we must collect the voices of women and mothers globally.
COPXX will focus on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 – ‘Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls’ – and the voice of the feminine on the planet.
It will promote climate change equality by amplifying the voices and power of global women and mothers.
The purpose of the initiative is to set sufficiently restorative and regenerative goals that can rapidly accelerate progress for climate change mitigation.
‘We are confronting global challenges like never before. The path forward depends on incorporating the power of women, coming together to join efforts and innovate new solutions to take us forward.
‘By calling on all women to publicly share goals aligned with a heart-centered framework of regeneration and restoration for the planet, we can accelerate progress on climate commitments and deliver transformational change.
‘The role of women as champions for nature and the feminine principles of community, care and nurture of future generations will be critical in mainstreaming ambitious policies for climate resilience.’
