TEDx Plattsburgh 2.0 Virtual Countdown Event
IMPACT - Women Leadership for inclusive Climate Action
How did the common story of Climate and Gender Equality begin? Have you ever thought?
Yes, they have a common story going back to BC. We will better understand why both Climate Change and Gender Inequality are human-made crises.
Human-made crises need human-made solutions including all pillars of human skills – cognitive, affective, physical and … social-. And that is what we are missing when it comes to Persistent Action for Sustainability Goals: Bottom-Up Multifaceted Approach.
Women Leadership has a unique advantage in bringing this Approach to life as women leaders have been shown by research that they are more empathetic, socially responsible, and transformative.
However, Women also have unique disadvantages as represented by the 30:80:39
30% of leaders globally are women
80% of people displaced by climate change are women
39% of the global labour force is represented by women
Even though 51% of the Earth’s population is made by women and girls.
On the other side of the coin:
• across 130 countries, women in government positions were more likely to sign on to international treaties to reduce global warming than men.
• women adopt innovative and preventative measures at a faster rate than men
• where women have higher social and political status, their countries have 12% lower CO2 emissions
Those success stories are mostly due to unique women leadership characteristics. Does it mean we should neglect male leaders? Women and men leadership are alike Yin and Yang and they are complete each other for ONENESS. We cannot have a greener, healthier, fairer, and sustainable world where there is a gap between genders in terms of leadership.
At this event, we will discuss in-depth,
Where are we at and what is the Threat waiting for Women Leadership for Sustainability
What should we do so that Female Leaders will rise?
Which trap shouldn’t we fall into?
Myths we need to change NOW!
It is time to RISE from the GOLDEN MINE of HUMANITY in the old days (BC) when women, men, and nature were perceived and respected as ONE. We need to be the `ONE` to become `ONE`. Are you ready? Then Join Us!
