This week, as world leaders convene in Rio de Janeiro to decide a viable future for our children and the planet, we're cranking up the volume on the often-unheard voices of grassroots women on the front lines of a growing ecological crisis.
Using the power of interactive media, we asked our community of women leaders to share their on-the-ground realities and advise policymakers at the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development. As their courageous voices echo throughout the forum, we invite you to read their stories.
"I hope that as world leaders look for global solutions, the voices and specific needs of women will be highlighted to make sustainable development a reality for them."
