"The UK is hosting climate change (COP) talks in 2021 which will set the narrative and framing for the agenda. Currently the UK COP26 leadership team is male dominated. Equal representation of women is vital for the leadership team and for the planet. That’s why #SHEChangesClimate is campaigning for 50:50 balance of women at the top level of COP26 leadership team."
"When it comes to climate change, being representative isn’t about looking good, it’s about setting a good example and doing the best job possible. Not just for the nations being represented, but for every single one of their citizens. Our current focus is on getting COP26 to achieve a 50:50 split of men and women in its top-level leadership team in the UK, but our global mission is to ensure ALL delegations have at least a 50% representation of women at their top levels."
Let it never be said by future generations that indifference, cynicism or selfishness made us fail to live up to the ideals of humanism which the Nobel Peace Prize encapsulates.
Let the strivings of us all, prove Martin Luther King Jr. to have been correct, when he said that humanity can no longer be tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war.
Let the efforts of us all, prove that he was not a mere dreamer when he spoke of the beauty of genuine brotherhood and peace being more precious than diamonds or silver or gold.
Let a new age dawn!
