The Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International is thrilled to announce the next phase of our Regional Climate Solutions Program in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) Region.

On the evening of March 28th, 30th and April 1, 2016 – women across the MENA region are invited to join WECAN and local coordinators, Fadoua Brour and Imene Hadjer Bouchair, for an online training focused on building a MENA ‘Women and Communities for 100% Renewables and Climate Justice Project’, and engaging in in-depth analysis on local and global climate justice movement building in the lead up to the U.N COP22 climate talks, to be held in Morocco in 2016.

The training aims to build the MENA region movement of women for climate justice and solutions in advance of COP22; strengthen competencies and equip participants with new skills and knowledge around the theme of climate change, climate education and media; provide systemic analysis of the root causes of climate change and real on-the-ground solutions, renewable energy and other related topics; strengthen local collaboration to implement sustainable activities in the field of climate change across the Middle East/North Africa; and take next steps in developing women led, on-the-ground local climate initiatives into 2016.

The training presents an excellent opportunity for networking with other women and organizational leaders from across the region, and for local women to be connected to the global women’s movement for climate justice.

WHEN: March 28th, 30th & April 1, 2016 from 7:00pm to 9:30pm GMT
