The reaction around the globe to coronavirus has proven that we are capable of changing behavior to face a serious threat. Can we deploy that urgency to address climate change? Research has proven a transformative link between improving the educational and economic opportunity, human security, and health and wellbeing of women and girls and reversing climate change. All of these issues are critically interconnected. Join women leaders from across the globe—and across generations—to explore these linkages, and discuss how women and girls can lead on climate solutions that are effective and just for all.
