WILPF Canada going to climate summit in Egypt

WILPF is part of the COP 27 Civil Society Coalition and the Climate Action Network. Please read the collective demands that we will be bringing to Egypt here. Our member Tamara Lorincz will be part of the official WILPF delegation at the climate summit in Sharm El-Sheikh with 9 other members and she will be promoting our messages of peace for climate justice, cutting military spending for climate finance, stop the wars – stop the warming, and demilitarization for decarbonization. Be sure to follow the WILPF delegation and our work on the climate emergency on social media using #WILPFCOP27. You can find out more about the WILPF Environment Working Group and COP 27 delegation here.

Read our joint letter to Minister of Environment Steven Guilbeault calling on him to take urgent action on climate change. We want Canada to stop fossil fuel development, demilitarize to decarbonize, cancel the F-35 fighter jets, cut military spending for a just transition and gender-responsive climate policies, and stop fueling the war in Ukraine.
