Young feminists are on the frontlines of efforts to resist, undo and mitigate the effects of climate change and environmental degradation.
Yet, as noted by FRIDA community at the UN climate negotiations, women, and young women in particular, often remain on the margins of decision-making and forums on these issues.
FRIDA recognizes that climate change and environmental degradation constitute a significant threat to human and our planet’s well-being, and that these threats disproportionately impact on women’s well-being, survival and livelihoods. With the aim of ensuring that young feminists and young women are supported in continuing to play an active role in the global transition towards justice and sustainability; FRIDA is launching a special grant round for young feminist and young women-led groups focused on Climate and Environmental Justice in targeted regions and countries.
Groups founded or led by young women or trans* youth (under 30 years) that are committed to ALL of the following:
1) Advancing and defending women’s rights from a feminist perspective
2) Improving the lives of young women/trans* youth at local, national, regional or international levels;
3) Working towards climate and/or environmental justice, understood as defending a clean, healthy and safe environment while at the same time defending the rights of the most marginalized sectors, including women, indigenous groups, and/or others;
