Construction Capacity for Women

They promote action plans to stop changes on the planet

The Workshop Construction Capacity for Women, which promotes emerging research areas and formulating action plans to combat climate change, took place in Polyforum 100 of the Climate Change Village in Cancun, Mexico.

"The focus of the workshop is to bring together a group of women interested in research on computer networks focused on women, sustainability and climate change," said Elizabeth Davis, professor at George Washington University.

"For us, this is an opportunity to connect with people, and make long-term projects to help our planet," said Davis.

Participants were divided into 3 groups where they had the opportunity to express their ideas to help care of ecosystems, and they highlighted the contributions for the maintenance of forests, generating renewable energy and recycling programs, among other topics.

The initiative came from a group of women researchers from different universities and work areas, since climate change affects not only the environment, but also sectors such as the economic, political and social, among others.

Professors of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (Mexico), George Washington (U.S.), Colorado State (U.S.) and Jahangirnagar (India), in addition to Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) like Women for Climate Justice, participated in this event.
