Volunteering as a vector for eco-responsible female entrepreneurship

Event | December 06 2023 | Canada

As part of International Volunteer Day, you are invited to our panel discussion entitled Volunteering as a vehicle for eco-responsible female entrepreneurship.

Women are more affected by the negative effects of climate change because of their social situation and the place they currently occupy in the global economy. Yet women are at the heart of solutions and transformations in terms of climate protection. By strengthening their economic autonomy and stimulating their role as green entrepreneurs, they become agents of change, in resource management, agricultural practices and the enhancement of local biodiversity. 

Come and discover how women's entrepreneurship and international volunteering are vectors of change for a green economy. 

On this occasion, we also celebrate the sustained and indispensable work of our volunteers.  Come and listen to our volunteers share their experiences and learnings! The panel will be followed by a festive evening. 

Free event, registration required
