Women in Climate Change event

The 1 Million Women Campaign presents – OUR CANBERRA BREAKFAST, JUNE 24 – Women in Climate Change, a national forum series.

Following sell-out events in five state capital cities drawing over 1700 women of Australia, the 1 Million Women campaign (www.1millionwomen.com.au) is delighted to bring our Women in Climate Change (WICC) national forum series to CANBERRA.

JOIN US at this special event to hear leading women of Australia offer their perspectives for the climate change challenge and practical programs and activities that will mobilise women from all backgrounds and cultures to join in cutting CO2 pollution and living more sustainably.

With great keynote speakers, panel discussions and entertainment, this breakfast event is a wonderful opportunity to:

  • Share in a dynamic and fresh dialogue ahead of the forthcoming federal election campaign, in which climate action is a key issue
  • Gain tools to empower you and your organisation to take action now, and
  • Get involved in the 1 Million Women campaign

The event is for everyone – women and men – who need to drive change in their organisations and communities.
