Declaration of the Historic 2013 International Women’s Earth and Climate Summit

Jane-Godall-and-Vandana-Shiva

We are the mothers and the grandmothers, sisters and daughters, nieces and aunts, who stand together to care for all generations across our professions, affiliations and national identities.

We are teachers and scientists, farmers and fishers, healers and helpers, workers and business peoples, writers and artists, decision-makers and activists, leaders and thinkers. We work in the halls of power, the halls of faith and the halls of our homes.

We are gathering to raise our voices to advocate for an Earth-respecting cultural narrative, one of “restore, respect, replenish” and to replace the narrative of “domination, depletion and destruction” of nature.

We are committed to a transition from a future of peril to a future of promise, to rally the women around the world to join together in action at all levels until the climate crisis is solved.

One thought on “Declaration of the Historic 2013 International Women’s Earth and Climate Summit

  1. This is the kind of thing that gives me hope, women realizing that we have to organize to save the Earth, since we cannot count on the men in power to do it for us. I have some quibbles with the wording of the declaration, but it certainly is far more aligned with my way of thinking than the approach of the mainstream environmental groups.
