OCIC at Drawndown Toronto Climate Action & Gender Equality Events

Date: 
Wednesday, Feb 13th, 2019 - 2:30 pm

Women and girls are not only disproportionately vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, they are actually pivotal to addressing global warming successfully.

Be part of the celebration for International Development Week 2019 and join OCIC, Drawdown Toronto, a project of Unify Toronto, and the Ryerson Leadership Lab on February 13 for two distinct opportunities to expand our thinking and mobilize on climate change solutions. 

Established in 1991, International Development Week is a uniquely Canadian tradition. The theme for IDW 2019, 'Together for Gender Equality,' aims to embody Canada's commitment to the global effort to address gender inequality and encourages all Canadians to be change-makers in advancing gender equality in the world.
