Young Women Leading Toward a Sustainable Future

Commitment by

Women's Environment and Development Organization WEDO

In 2012, WEDO committed to expanding their platform to mobilize young women as sustainability leaders by incorporating human rights and gender equality, environmental sustainability and economic empowerment issues into existing programs and networks that promote and empower young women as leaders, both in the U.S. and worldwide. WEDO will conduct a mapping of current initiatives focused on young women's empowerment, particularly in the area of STEM to identify methodologies for leadership development and highlighting gaps in knowledge and capacity building on sustainable development. A portfolio of practical tools for information sharing will be created for training and use in these existing programs.
