Climate and Gender Justice: Addressing the Climate Crisis with an Intersectional Feminist Approach

Event Date: 
April 14, 2021

Social movements like the Sunrise Movement and Fridays for Future have become strong voices holding administrations accountable for enforcing international agreements such as the Paris Climate Agreement. These agreements are under threat, gendered and racialized inequalities of the climate crisis are too often neglected, both within and between nations, and the COVID-19 pandemic seems to overshadow the climate commitments on both sides of the Atlantic. How does the climate crisis impact the current societal structures, both within and among nations? How can we use the climate crisis as an opportunity to reshape power structures? How is the fight for climate justice interconnected with the fight for feminism and how can a Feminist Foreign Policy address the current climate emergency?

Join 1014 and the Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CFFP), with support from the American Council on Germany, for a discussion about these questions with Natalia Cardona Sanchez, Associate Director for Justice & Equity at, and Leonie Bremer, climate activist at Fridays for Future Germany; and moderated by Kristina Lunz, CFFP Co-Founder and Germany Co-Executive Director. CFFP x 1014 presents new approaches to foreign policy - feminist foreign policy and its potential for advancing transatlantic relations.
