Zonta International releases new statement on climate change
Saturday, 5 June, is World Environment Day, and we are pleased to share with you our new statement on climate change, a major global crisis that has a negative impact on people and the environment around the world.
Though we are not an environmental or disaster response organization, we recognize that climate change disproportionately affects women and girls, and action is needed from a gender equality perspective.
As an organization committed to empowering women and girls globally and locally and promoting justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, Zonta International is calling for action in favor of a fair and human rights-based approach to solve the crisis of climate change in the post-pandemic world and achieve greener, cleaner and equal societies.
