Report on Drawdown Toronto Summit on Climate Action & Gender Equality

Did you know that the number one solution to global warming is educating girls and family planning combined?

Drawdown Toronto, a project of Unify Toronto, held this Summit to spark a conversation on the nexus between climate and gender. This post was originally published in the Unify Toronto blog. It has been slightly adapted for this blog.

About 65 participants attended this dynamic evening to:

  • learn more about Project Drawdown’s comprehensive model to reverse global warming, and particularly the three solutions Project Drawdown has grouped into the “Women and Girls” sector: girls’ education, family planning and women smallholders; 
  • hear from Ontario-based International Cooperation organizations and institutions about their programming related to the three Drawdown Women and Girls solutions;
  • expand and share insights on how to contribute to climate change action in Toronto, Ontario and Canada, and move forward Women and Girls-related solutions globally;
  • meet local and global organizations working in Climate Action and Gender Equality and learn how to get involved.
