The Power of Women in Climate and Energy: Acting for a Sustainable Future06/03/2023
There is a growing recognition of the crucial role women can play in addressing climate and energy issues. Research has shown that when women are involved in decision-making, policies and programs are more likely to be effective and sustainable.
Covenant of Mayors East aims to highlight the inspiring stories of women from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, who are leading the way in the climate and energy sectors. These women are making an impact in various ways, including serving as policymakers and leaders in government, civil society, and the private sector. They are scientists and researchers who are developing new technologies and innovations. They are entrepreneurs and business leaders who are driving the growth of clean energy industries. They are community leaders who are raising awareness and mobilizing action on climate change.
All of these women are working towards addressing environmental challenges and promoting sustainable practices. They are also advocating for greater gender equality in access to education, training, and employment opportunities in the climate and energy sectors.
The power of women in climate and energy is vital for achieving a sustainable future. Women are driving innovation, providing leadership, and advocating for action on climate change. It is crucial to recognize and support the contributions of women in these fields and to work towards greater gender equality in access to education, training, and employment opportunities. By harnessing the power of women, we can accelerate progress towards a more sustainable, just, and equitable future for all.
As we move forward towards a more sustainable future, it is important to amplify the voices and experiences of women in climate and energy sectors. That is why Covenant of Mayors East is launching a social media campaign in March 2023 to showcase the inspiring stories of women from the ENPI countries who are leading the way in addressing environmental challenges and promoting sustainable practices. By sharing these stories, we hope to inspire more women to pursue careers in climate and energy and to promote greater gender equality in these fields. Join us in celebrating the power of women in climate and energy and working towards a more sustainable, just, and equitable future for all.
