Empowering Resilient Women

SYNOPSIS

Join CLEO’s Empowering Resilient Women program to explore the gender-climate connection while building your resilience to the impacts of a changing climate. A group of 12 applicants will attend a workshop series. Meals will be provided for in-person gatherings. All participants will be financially compensated for attending all workshops. Furthermore, funds for participants will be provided to build food security in the form of urban gardening.

The program is rooted in 4 principles: We LEARN, We CONNECT, We PREPARE, We LEAD.

AUDIENCE

Women

WHAT YOU'LL GAIN

  • Connect the dots on food, health, and gender as it relates to climate impacts and solutions
  • Understand the long term consequences of current food systems and community resilience/health
  • Understand extreme weather preparedness (hurricanes) as it relates to climate
  • Knowledge in basic edible gardening skills
  • Become an advocate for just and equitable food systems locally
  • Incorporate plant-rich, locally sourced meals into everyday life

WHY IT MATTERS

  • Studies show women are more likely than men to be affected during a climate disaster.
  • As first responders in crises or decision-makers at home, women are great agents of change.
  • Provides a much-needed space to support and strengthen women’s leadership in communities through mentorship and mutual learning.
