We demand energy justice: decentralized and community-owned energy systems that reflect the needs and priorities of all people and are safe, affordable, and socially, economically and environmentally sound. We want an end to fossil fuels, nuclear power, mega dams, geo-engineering, and other high-risk technologies.

We will have a world of 100% renewables.

We know our current economic models drive climate chaos and injustice through the promotion of growth outside the limits of our planetary boundaries. We have created an unsustainable economic system with global inequality and concentrated wealth that drives the climate crisis. The least developed countries and people living in poverty bear the greatest brunt of climate change, for which industrialized countries are mostly responsible. We need to change the system. To that end, we need trade justice, sustainable consumption patterns and economies of care. We need to equitably share wealth, resource and power and immediately divest from fossil fuel investments, toxic extraction industries, and all unsustainable production. We will change the system.

Solutions for a more just world already exist. From advancing gender equality to ending inequalities and human rights violations. From alternative energy, agro-ecology, marine and land reserves to changing behaviors and consumption patterns. From innovating policies in cities and urban areas and to educating for sustainable development. From just adaptation and mitigation strategies to seriously addressing loss and damage from climate chaos.

A better world is in our midst and women and girls are central to designing and implementing the solutions that will sustain it.

In fact, they are already doing so.

We already see the impacts of climate change happening around the world, primarily impacting peoples from the global South, with ever-worsening impacts on women’s lives, livelihoods and communities. Climate change is an issue of survival for humans and other species. For some island nations, it is about their very right to exist.

Climate chaos challenges sovereignty, clean and accessible water and sewage, clean air, healthy forests, land and oceans and biodiversity.

For women of the world, climate justice is about the survival and dignity of all- nothing less is acceptable.

It is time to reclaim our power — in our commons, our governments, our health, our food, our energy, our land, our oceans, and our world. We will showcase the power of collective action, of women and girls, and of peoples’ movements over the power of corporate interests. We will tell the truth about polluting industries and challenge the corporations and governments that are driving climate chaos.

Women of the world will speak truth to power.

We have called on you to act, and now, we call on you to join the global march for climate justice. Join concerned women all over the world and participate in mass actions and/or create your own local action wherever you are in the world. Together, hundreds of thousands, in fact, millions of us will call for ‘System change not climate change’!

For ecological repair. For human rights.

For climate justice. For economic justice.

For gender justice. For a better and just world. For Peace.

In your country’s capital. In your house, village, township or city.
