Impact of Climate Change on Girls & Women
The climate crisis is not gender-neutral. Climate change, the long-term change in average weather patterns, disproportionately impacts women throughout the world. Here’s the good news: girls and youth are taking the lead in addressing the climate crisis firsthand! Through the climate restoration movement, youth are advocating for the removal of excess atmospheric carbon dioxide to pre-industrial levels by the year 2050. Join Girl Up leaders in adding climate restoration to the global climate action movement. Sign up below to take our free, self-paced climate course today!
It’s important to raise our voices and advocate for a change because we can no longer suffer the consequences of climate change.Marla, girl up méxico leader
