This CSW66 side event brings together insights from ecofeminist research in global North and South arguing that both narratives and practices must change to secure gender just transitions: ecofeminism offers powerful alternative narratives that value care for people and planet, in contrast to mainstream development. Much just transition policy attention still focuses on male-dominated, formal work such as coal mining. Who is represented in narratives for just low-carbon transitions makes a difference. Women’s voices and lived experiences need to influence debates and decision making to achieve gender-egalitarian practices and low-carbon transitions that contribute to climate action and justice.
