The student club ECO, 2016

Environmental issues, including climate change, impact us to varying degrees based on our gender identity. How do we see this unfolding around us, both locally and globally? What are the specific challenges that women face in a changing climate? How is feminism advancing the struggle for environmental justice? The event was hosted by Cornell Environmental Collaborative - ECO and took place 9/30/16 on Friday at 5:00pm in Biotech G01.

Three presenters shared their insights on this topic, followed by a student-facilitated discussion to develop strategies for action.

Presenters:
Hilary Faxon, PhD Candidate, Dept. of Development Sociology
Tamar Law & Lisa Malloy, Student Activists
