Engaging Canadian women in environment and energy issues is imperative to ensure that we meet the current generation's needs without reducing the ability for future generations to meet their needs. From empowering women to take part in STEM disciplines, to preventing environmental degradation, women’s participation is critical to Canada’s energy and environment future.
This toolkit has three main objectives:
- To engage and educate women in environmental, energy, and climate change issues that affect their daily lives in work and in day-to-day
- To enable women across Canada to explore different pathways to make change and engage in politics and policy on these issues
- To provide policy options, strategies for engagement, and tools of empowerment to allow women to participate in the political and policy process in Canada
