What if women’s untapped power to make change was harnessed to fight the climate crisis?
Climate change affects us all globally – but it does not affect us all equally. Vast social and economic inequities mean we don’t all contribute to the climate crisis to the same degree; nor are its effects evenly distributed. Racialised women are the most likely to suffer the consequences of climate change, which they have done the least to cause. Meanwhile, women are marginalised in the spaces where climate solutions are shaped.
Gender inequality has helped cause climate catastrophe – and we need gender equality to help us solve it, argues writer and sociologist Anne Karpf. We must see women not simply as the victims nor the sole saviours of our global situation, but as holders of power to make systemic change. She speaks with inspiring women from across the world building movements for gender-inclusive climate action.

Through a global mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities; they aim influence the conversation through leadership events and create new momentum and interest among future leaders.
“Women make up more than half the world’s population, and although they are often disproportionately impacted by climate change, their voices are not always heard due to lack of inclusion and representation at the decision-making level. Now more than ever, enhancing women’s participation and leadership in the conversation around climate action will be critical to securing a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for us all” (Women4Climate).
How do you empower the next generation of women to lead climate action and justice globally? Watch this session to find out!
If we really want to address climate change, we need to make gender equity a reality, says writer and environmentalist Katharine Wilkinson. As part of Project Drawdown, Wilkinson has helped scour humanity's wisdom for solutions to draw down heat-trapping, climate-changing emissions: obvious things like renewable energy and sustainable diets and not so obvious ones, like the education and empowerment of women. In this informative, bold talk, she shares three key ways that equity for women and girls can help stop global warming. "Drawing down emissions depends on rising up," Wilkinson says.
“A girl is worth nothing. That is what I was told for 17 years of my life. It was hard for me to accept, and even harder for me to ignore.” Lesly Goh, the Chief Technology Officer of the World Bank, explains how technology changed her life and led her to where she is today. Lesly was previously the Financial Services Industry Lead for Microsoft Asia Pacific. She is thought of as a leader in the industry, especially in FinTech and the use of Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain technologies as a new frontier for disrupting the traditional business model in Financial Services.

Henry Taylor is a 12th grader at Pioneer High School. In his free time, he loves hanging out with friends, going to see good movies, researching politics, and reading. Henry has been a big supporter of the feminist movement for a while now, and he thinks that doing a TEDx talk would be a really cool and effective way for him to throw in his 2 cents as to why everyone, regardless of gender, should be a feminist. Next year, Henry plans on attending American University in Washington D.C. to study communications, law, economics, and government in an interdisciplinary program known as CLEG. TEDxYouth@AnnArbor

Will Keepin & Cynthia Brix - Transforming Patriarchy: From Gender Oppression to Beloved Community Watch their full talk here.
The Gender Equity and Reconciliation process (GRI) seeks to heal the profound wounds around gender, sexuality, and relational intimacy. It brings together people of all sexual orientations and genders to jointly confront gender disharmony to reach healing reconciliation. Will and Cynthia have developed the method over 24 years, introducing the practices in nine countries. Gender reconciliation's startling successes in South Africa have played a role in transforming that country's AIDS and HIV policies, and exciting new academic research on the program is underway at two South African universities.
This speech was given at the 2016 National Bioneers Conference.
