Climate Justice

Engendering the Energy Transition



We can only demand climate justice from the perspective of gender equality. Women are affected differently and more severely by climate change because of social stereotypes, discrimination and poverty. In this perspective it is imperative to look at how gender equality can inform the discourse on energy transition. As the Paris agreement states, we need to develop gender sensitive policies. A key question is that climate finance must deliver a fair allocation of resources. But how is this done in practice? How do we engender the European energy agenda and how do we make sure women are considered throughout the energy transition as decision makers, workers, and consumers? Can we conclude on basic principles?

The objective of the conference is to bring together stakeholders from the climate, energy and gender equality fields to discuss how to engender the European energy transition agenda, to create synergies and a networking platform for future exchanges, and to identify possible concrete areas of work convergence.  

The conference will be live streamed.
