GGWN was established in Global Greens Congress in Dakar, Senegal, 2012. The purpose of the Network is defined in the founding resolution.
The Global Greens Women’s Network (GGWN) supports the participation of Green women worldwide in democratic political processes, by focusing on:
- Capacity building and empowerment: training and developing skills, such as public speaking and leadership.
- Governance and participation: confronting inequalities at the organisational level and exchanging best practices to tackle them and promote participation.
- Campaigning about major topics relevant to women: such as gender justice and climate change.
- Carrying out formal functions as part of global Greens governance: e.g. nominating women to the Asia-Pacific Greens Federation (APGF) Council.
The network organizes itself online to work on our activity plan.
