THE BIG GIVE

 

 

#WomensVoicesMatter

ONE DONATION, TWICE THE IMPACT! 

22nd April – 29th April 

 

 

 

HELP US REACH OUR TARGET OF £14,400

 

We’re taking part in the Big Give Green Match Fund – where every donation we receive via the Big Give website between the 22nd – 29th April will be DOUBLED!

All the funds we raise will support our Climate Sisters programme, working to raise the voices of women and other marginalised groups in climate debates. There are still many more women and diverse groups that should be heard by policy makers. With your support we can reach even more people.

We are looking to raise £14,400, which will be match funded by Poldham Puckham Charitable Foundation.  We hope you can help us reach our target.  Please spread the word using our supporters pack!

WHAT WE’RE RAISING MONEY FOR

All funds raised will support our Climate Sisters programme – bringing more women and diverse groups to the climate table. Because #WomensVoicesMatter

 

I knew Climate change was a big issue but I didn’t realize there was a Conference to discuss it globally. Attending COP26 was such a revelation of how Climate change is linked to most of the issues we face in our communities”  – Lils, Climate Sister

Women and particularly women of colour are impacted more by climate change, but are not equally represented in climate decision-making. Their needs and priorities are being overlooked, leading to less effective climate solutions.  Read our interview with Climate Sister, Simran Kaur

 

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Working together with women’s and community groups across the UK, the Climate Sisters programme is platforming their vision, concerns and needs for a green, safe and caring economy. Thanks to this programme, marginalised voices are being included in Feminist Green New Deal policy papers and an action plan for policy makers to enact.  

There are still many more women and diverse groups that should be heard by policy makers. With your support we can amplify their voices.

“lf we do not do anything about it now, it will be too late to reverse these effects. It is about playing a part as an individual/cluster group /community/city/country and the world as a whole.This is our time to leave a footprint of change in whatever field we are in – Siphiwe Mungoni, Climate Sister

In 2021 women participating in the Climate Sisters programme, created an exhibition at COP26, reflecting their thoughts, feelings and views on climate change. Find out more here. 

FUNDRAISE

Taking part in a fundraising event for Wen, is a great way to make a difference and will help more women and other marginalised people to have a voice in climate debates. 

An event could be anything from a sponsored cycle ride, a coffee morning with friends, or even running a workshop. 

A simple way to begin is to set up a fundraiser on Facebook or Instagram or you can set up your own fundraising page via the Just Giving Climate Sisters Fundraiser page.  For more details on fundraising read this.
