Here we present NGOs that have worked towards improving gender equality and sustainable development. Here other organisations can also find examples and inspiration for their own activities.
On the gender equality co-operation section, Finland has chosen to focus upon gender equality and climate change within its presidency in the Nordic Council of Ministers 2011. Nordic cooperation around this theme began in 2008 when the Nordic gender equality ministers initiated the Gender and Climate Change project.
On this webpage we highlight a number of companies that have worked on the relationship between gender and climate change. You can read about Audur Capital, the Nordic Investment Bank and Ecoloove.
You can also read about NGOs that include the gender perspective in their climate change work. You can read, for example, about the Finnish Martha Organization and Agenda 21 on Åland.
