A WGGAN delegation will attend the United Nations Commission for Sustainable Development (CSD) 14th Session in New York City.
WGGAN understands that in women's efforts to curb the impacts of environmental degradation they work against powerfully entrenched social, economic, and political barriers.
Sensing this opportunity and intent on building a movement towards a fully sustainable society--both socially just and environmentally sound--the WGGAN team continues to build a strategic platform for both experienced and emerging grassroots women leaders to convene, inspire and collaborate across borders.
By further empowering the thousands of women around the world who take a stand for the health of their natural environment and their communities, WGGAN serves as an instrument of social democracy--equalizing access, connectivity, and influence across divides.
