For the Earth and Future Generations 
WECAN International/WECC Newsletter
Fall 2014
From the WECAN Team

This month, international politicians, business figures and activists will gather in New York City for the UN Climate Leadership Summit. In the days preceding his crucial assembly, civil society organizations worldwide - including the Women's Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN International/WECC) - will lead a variety of events and actions, demanding that global leaders end years of stagnation and come to the table with innovative proposals and the collective will to make concrete commitments to climate action.


Join us in NYC, or stand in solidarity in your local communities. Information and registration for all WECAN events and actions are available here.
