March 8 is more than a day of celebration; it is a call to action.

This year, CEPIA brought the issue of climate change to the center of the debate, highlighting the fact that the climate crisis affects women disproportionately, but also highlighting the importance that gender and racial equality is fundamental to achieving solutions that are more sustainable and equitable in responding to this crisis.

Among the activities carried out throughout the month of March, some were in partnership with the Gender and Climate Group of the Climate Observatory, drawing attention to the importance of greater female representation at the COP, in collaboration with @empoderaclima, and giving visibility to the Campaign Women Who give the Letters for the Climate. Environmental racism and its relationship with the reality of black and peripheral women was also addressed and included the participation of biologist Jéssica Alves Coelho.
