Three Days to focus on Gender & Climate Justice

While some of us are organizing the Women’s Tribunals on Gender and Climate Justice around International Day for Rural Women (Oct. 15), World Food Day (Oct.16th) and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (IDEP-Oct. 17th) to connect the issues of rural women, food sovereignty and environmental sustainability and its intersections with poverty, FTF members may be planning events around IDEP October 17th. Let’s hear about your involvement if you are planning something (see note below).
FTF members are organizing Women’s Tribunals around these days in the following countries:
— El Salvador
— Nepal
— Uganda
In New York we will be joining the United Methodist Women and partners for a commemoration of International Day of Rural Women and World Food Day, as well as joining the ATD 4th World/Subcommittee on the Eradication of Poverty ceremonies on Oct. 17th (for those in New York, invitation enclosed).

Dear GCAP Supporters,The International Day for the Eradication of Poverty is only one week away, and events are set to take place around the globe to build The World We Want. In Singapore, schoolchildren are raising money for low income schools in India to buy milk. There will be a women’s tribunal on climate change focusing on deforestation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, that will send a message to world leaders making decisions about climate change at COP17 in Durban. In Poland, there will be a petition for the government to ratify the European Social Charter.Please remember to register your events on www.whiteband.organd share with the world what you are doing to create The World We Want. Text of the World We Want report is available now and we will circulate the full version very soon!In solidarity,
The GCAP Secretariat
