"The Women’s Earth and Climate Caucus provides a richly personal, as well as a project-based, approach to speed progress towards mutual goals of reducing carbon emissions and creating sustainable communities and lifestyles.

"WECC co-hosted two high-level events at the Rio+20 Earth Summit in Brazil with presenters such as Vandana Shiva, Ted Turner, Marina Silva, Sylvia Earle, women from the Amazon Rainforest and La Via Campesina, and other key grassroots leaders. WECC has organized and hosted over 40 forums and events in 3 years, including a Women and Climate live-stream to millions of viewers worldwide and sessions during various UN Commission on Sustainable Development meetings in New York City."
