Women Leading Climate Action Webinar Series

While the world’s attention has rightly turned to the COVID-19 emergency, it is vital to keep climate action firmly on the national and global agenda.


ActionAid partnered with Women’s Agenda to host the webinar series Women Leading Climate Action series – a live virtual discussion about the ways in which women leaders are keeping climate action on the global agenda amidst COVID-19.

In case you missed out, or simply want to rewatch the discussions, check out the event recordings below.

Women Leading Climate Action: Fighting fake news

6 October 2020 The way we consume information has changed dramatically in the last few decades. Self-publishing and social media mean that false or misleading information can be created and shared incredibly fast, seen by thousands before anyone has even stopped to ask if it’s true.

Facilitated by Women’s Agenda Founding Editor, Angela Priestley, we will be joined by three experts in the field: MediaScope advisor Denise Shrivell, climate change psychology researcher, Belinda Xie and Sharon Bhagwan Rolls who leads ActionAid’s Pacific partner, the Shifting the Power Coalition.
