WECF joins Gender+E3, an informal working group in the European Parliament to discuss gender and environmental issues

WECF has joined Gender+E3, an informal working group in the European Parliament, composed of MEP’s and NGO’s. The three E’s in the group’s name stand for quality, ecology and economy. The group thus aims to work for socially, ecologically, and economically sustainable policies within and outside the European sphere.

Gender+E3 will promote debates on global challenges such as climate change and inequality. This will be done in at least three seminars and workshops, whose themes are yet to be agreed upon. The next seminars are scheduled for the fall.

Include gender mainstreaming in EU - article by the Working Group Gender +E3
Generally the EU is good at including gender mainstreaming or demanding an equal number of seats for women in decision making groups when it comes to climate change.

The group will work to get its message across different forums and committees in the parliament, as well as trying to get its perspectives inserted in Commission directives and initiative reports. The participant NGO’s will also inform MEPs about gender and environmental conferences, actions and campaigns, building a bridge between the parliament and the civil society. The organizations have also committed to writing articles that connect their core issues to the work currently being done in the parliament.
