Women and Trees: Together as Climate Activists

Trees offer inspiration and hope for a healthy future for our planet. Women in Guatemala and other Latin American countries explore the potential of trees and nature to confront climate change and the importance of bottom-up forest restoration and local land management. Women also engage in dangerous protests to protect old-growth forests of the Amazon and the Bolivian Highlands, often on indigenous land. Speakers will outline these efforts and lead discussion of how we can partner with forests and trees to repair and protect the Earth. Register in advance for this meeting.
