COPXX is launching at the annual global event for the World Humanitarian Forum, challenging women everywhere to align and promote the values of care, nurture and love for the planet leading up to COP26, the climate conference to be held in Glasgow in November.
Collecting the voices of women and mothers globally is urgently needed to speak to the leaders and policy makers to gauge whether their activities are aiming at the necessary level of ambition to deliver for women and future generations on the climate action goals of COP26.
By promoting SDG 5 and the voice of the feminine on the planet, the goal is to set sufficiently restorative and regenerative goals that can rapidly accelerate progress for climate change mitigation. COPXX is being launched with support of the World Humanitarian Forum and will be discussed at the World Humanitarian Forum’s annual event this Thursday, May 20 at 10:40 am BST.
The World Humanitarian Forum (WHF) is held three times a year, at the side of the UN General Assembly, at the side of Davos in January and their London Main Event happening today. The WHF advances critical global discussions and transforms conversations into action, as well as providing a powerful forum to catalyze collaboration through shared-value approaches and social impact objectives. This year’s event focuses on building back better with greater equality that leaves no one behind. COPXX is an initiative which will promote climate change equality through focusing on SDG 5 and amplifying the voices and power of global women and mothers.
Joining the COPXX launch at the World Humanitarian Forum are Co-founders Jarvis Smith, CEO, My Green Pod and Dianne Dain, Chief Innovation Officer of WHF; HE Aisha Babangida, Chair, Better Life for Africa Rural Woman; Sergio Fernandez de Cordova, Chair, Pvblic; Salem Avan, Director, UN-OICT; Emily Cromwell, Sustainability Director at Deloitte and Antoinette Gallifrey, Co-founder of She Changes Climate.
COPXX, with support from the World Humanitarian Forum, aims to enable the world’s women to embrace ambitious goals and advance the integration of SDG 5 into core business management, government policies and information technology landscapes as they pertain to climate change mitigation.
“We are confronting global challenges like never before. The path forward depends on incorporating the power of women, coming together to join efforts and innovate new solutions to take us forward,” said Dianne Dain, COPXX co-founder and WHF Chief Innovation Officer. “By calling on all women to publicly share goals aligned with a heart centered framework of regeneration and restoration for the planet, we can accelerate progress on climate commitments and deliver transformational change. The role of women as champions for nature and the feminine principles of community, care and nurture of future generations will be critical in mainstreaming ambitious policies for climate resilience.”
