"Internationally, women leaders are at the forefront of a global civil society network working to hold government, international institutions, and the private sector to account for their promises on climate action." - Wangari Maathai, Environmental and political activist, Kenya

"The International Women's Earth & Climate Summit will take place on September 20 – 23, 2013 in New York. The Summit will bring together 100 global women leaders including grassroots activists, economists, scientists, businesswomen, Indigenous leaders, policy-makers, faith leaders, culture shapers for 3.5 days to help further a women’s climate action agenda. Although this is an invitation only summit at the New York site for 100 women, we welcome and need women of the world to engage with us!"
