Climate Wise Women is a global initiative to promote women's leadership on climate change and to give a human face and voice to this complex issue.

Our Climate Wise Women speaking events present the stories of women leaders from regions affected by climate change in their own voices. We invite local guests to comment and respond with locally relevant issues and connections in a panel discussion format. We celebrate women's leadership and provide a springboard for collaboration and mutual support.

“The solution to climate change is to engage with people personally. To build connections and friendships and talk to them in person, and to answer their questions and fears…all the big social movements in history have been through people personally connecting with each other.”
— Deepa Gupta, Co-Founder, Indian Youth Climate Network

The Climate Wise Women is a project of the Earth Island Institute.
