Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) and the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) have assessed the gender gaps and opportunities around the European Green Deal. This included analysing sectoral policies including agriculture, energy, climate, transport and chemicals as well as proposing alternative narratives on overarching issues such as the economic transition, green jobs, green and gender just budgeting and taxation and political representation.
Their report focus on gender equality with an intersectional approach, looking into specific situation where inequalities linked to race, ability, sexual identity, age or class come into play. It brings together a wide range of authors from CSOs, academia and independent experts. It makes recommendations to the European Union and Member States to make the Green Deal gender-transformative.
The objectives of the report are:
- Raise awareness on the gender-environment nexus in the European Green Deal
- Present the main findings of our report
- Engage policymakers in a discussion on how to enhance gender-sensitivity of the European Green Deal
The report is being launched 16 July with an event from 9:30 to 11am CEST.
