Saving Gaia: Women against Climate Change

Climate change affects both men and women, but disproportionately affects communities that are already impoverished and do not bear the bulk of the responsibility for climate change. Plus, 70% of the world’s impoverished are women. Women face social, economic and political barriers that largely prevent them from coping with the threat of climate change, but also prevent them from taking part in crucial decision-making processes to combat global warming. For the United Nation’s International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, join us for a panel discussion with leading female scientists on climate change to learn more about global warming and its wide-reaching impacts on impoverished communities. This event is organised in partnership with Singapore Committee of UN Women and generously hosted by the Science Centre. (FREE Admission)
