WEBINAR "Women in Politics: Experiences from Green leaders"

The Global Greens Women's Network (GGWN) was established at the 3rd Global Greens Congress in Dakar in 2012 to support and promote the participation of Green women worldwide in democratic political processes. 

On April 16, 2016, the GGWN will launch its first Webinar, as part of the program of the GG Women’s Academy, with a great panel of Green Women Leaders of different continents to share experience and learn from each other.

This is a very special day because it will be the Global Greens 15th Anniversary! On 16 April 2001, the Global Greens Charter was adopted by consensus at the first Global Greens Congress in Canberra, Australia.

It is a good day to remind our main principles: ecological wisdom, social justice, direct democracy, nonviolence, sustainability and respect for diversity. This year the Global Greens Women Network is leading this celebration! For the empowering of women around the world!
