Your compiled work will be presented to the delegates at the International 100 Women Summit for Climate Change and Sustainability Solutions, September 2013 in New York.

The Summit Outcome Documents and Online Solutions Forum will be used for international strategic planning, advocacy and unified actions. We will present our outcomes to everyone from grassroots leaders to Heads of State; from local governments to UN meetings (connecting to the post 2015 Agenda, UNFCCC and others), from neighborhood gatherings to international conferences such as the Clinton Global Initiative.

Global climate change is no longer a distant warning but is rapidly approaching a tipping point of no return. Scientists admonish that the chance to prevent the worst impacts of climate change will be “lost forever” unless the global community changes course immediately.

It is internationally recognized that women bear a heavier burden from the impacts of climate change, yet it is also known they are key to implementing climate change and sustainability solutions.

IWECI to engage women to take action!
The International Women's Earth and Climate Initiative (IWECI) is designed to accelerate a holistic Global Women's Earth & Climate Action Movement, recognizing and promoting women as powerful stakeholders in climate change and sustainability solutions.

IWECI utilizes networking, partnerships, projects, trainings, alliances, consumer choice campaigns, and economic and social action to move forward its solutions-based work, directly addressing threats and helping implement solutions and projects on the ground. Bringing together a coalition of women from civil society, grassroots activists, Indigenous and business leaders, policy makers and culture shapers – from the Global South and the Global North – IWECI is determined to stop the escalation of climate change and environmental degradation. Understanding that this work requires ongoing dedication, IWECI is a long-term initiative.

Women are living on the frontlines of climate change, and are ready to be active partners in dealing with climate change. If the international community is serious about addressing climate change, it must recognize women as a fundamental part of the climate solution.
