This event will create a space to discuss and share insights on women’s full and effective participation and decision making in the transition to renewable energy as a means for achieving gender equality.

We will explore women’s participation in green-energy policy making and renewable energy projects, making references to key case studies in order to highlight:

  • The risks associated with energy transition models that do not fully integrate women’s full and effective participation and decision making, and
  • Key policy proposals and recommendations to ensure women’s participation in the transition to renewable energy.
