Global climate change is no longer a distant warning but is rapidly approaching a tipping point. The time is now to usher in a sustainable future. World Pulse is partnered with Women’s Earth & Climate Action Network—WECAN International—to unite women and allies around the worldin the lead up to a Global Women's Climate Justice Day of Action on September 29.
As we bring our voices and actions together across the globe, we’re building a movement to advance grassroots climate solutions and hold governments, corporations, and international bodies accountable. Continue the discussion in the Environment Group.
Big or small, any action you take is a step towards climate justice. Your voice will join voices of activists around the world demanding action. Together, we are envisioning the way forward.
- World Pulse will publish select climate change stories to ourGlobal Issues page.
- Those who are published on Global Issues will receive an honorarium and a Certificate of Publication.
- Additionally, allsignatures to the Women's Climate Declaration will be delivered to the COP21 climate negotiations in Paris in December. Make your voice heard!
Tip:Stories that are 800-1000 words will be most likely to be published. We look to publish pieces that are solutions-oriented and that emphasize the personal and collective, as well as creativity, innovation, transformation, and collaboration.
