Saving Gaia: Women Tackling Climate Change

Description

A rise in global temperatures has led to extreme weather events, droughts, floods and restricted food and water security. Climate change affects both men and women, but disproportionately affects the world’s poor - with 70% of the world’s poor being women. Women face social, economic and political barriers that largely prevent them from coping with the threat of climate change, but also prevent them from taking part in crucial decision-making processes to combat global warming. For the United Nation’s International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, join us for a panel discussion with leading female scientists on climate change to learn more about global warming and its wide-reaching impacts.

This event is organised in partnership with ONE SINGAPORE and generously hosted by the Science Centre.

This event is also in line with our Girls2Pioneers campaign, to encourage more young girls to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We will be featuring female scientists from around Singapore to speak about their experiences and expertise as women working in the science fields!

In addition to this, Global Giving will be holding a Bonus Day on the 7th of October and all donations will be matched by 50%. Help support the next generation of innovators by donating to the Girls2Pioneers campaign on the 7th of October!

Encouraging women in traditionally male dominated fields challenges gender stereotypes and institutional violence and is in line with our Help Anna campaign.
