1 June 2018 - Under Her Eye, London

Curated by the brilliant Invisible Dust, ‘Under Her Eye: Women and Climate Change’, is an international Summit and Arts Festival that will explore and celebrate the role of women taking action on climate change, as part of the 2018 Suffrage Centenary.

As the UN Special Envoy on Climate Change Mary Robinson asserted: ‘the challenges of climate change cannot be solved without empowering women’. Throughout the day a range of panel talks, in-conversations, workshops and performances will engage, provoke and inspire on this topic.

Speakers include:

Headline slot - Margaret Atwood, Booker-prize winning novelist

Caroline Lucas, Co-Leader, UK Green Party

Hakima El Haité, Moroccan Minister for the Environment and COP22 Host

Jessica Ground, Global Head of Stewardship, Schroders

Maaike Van Min, former Head of Development and Strategy, Marie Stopes

Professor Joanna Haigh, Co-director, Grantham Institute

Laura Tenenbaum, former Senior Science Editor at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Dr Erinma Ochu, Lecturer in Science Communication and Future Media, University of Salford

Kate Raworth, Doughnut Economics author and renegade economist

Diana Simpson Hernandez, Waste Lab Founder and sustainable design pioneer

Alison Tickell, Director, Julie’s Bicycle

Mel Evans, Author of Artwash and former Head of Art Greenpeace

Dr Nina Skorupska, CEO, Renewable Energy Association

Charlotte Du Cann, Founder, Dark Mountain Project

I'll be joining this line-up of incredible women to chair two sessions on the economics of transitioning to a low carbon economy, and the role of creative activism in initiating and sustaining change.
