Global Ecofeminism Conference: Women, Sustainability, and the Environment
Saturday, April 26th, 2014
Santa Monica College



Thanks to a grant from the SMC Global Citizenship Intiative,

we are proud to present an all-day conference which will inform students at 

SMC and neighboring colleges about the role environmental degradation, 

lack of access to natural resources, and toxic exposure plays in the lives of women around

the world, and how women in a variety of professions are working on solving these problems.

The conference is also informed overall by this year's SMC Global Citizenship Initiative theme,

“Peace and Security: managing conflict and violence in a turbulent world".

The conference will examine how climate change and other environmental issues relate
to conflict, violence, security, etc, and how women specifically will be affected.
