Women and especially indigenous women remain under-represented in the climate movement. How can visual activism help broaden the movement and elevate women’s voices?
We were honoured for our CEO, Lydia Wanjiku Kibandi, to join the New York Times’ Climate Hub for an inspiring series of talks on the occasion of COP 26, the United Nations’ Climate Change conference. On November 11th, 2021, Lydia took part in the panel discussion, A Picture Worth a Thousand Words, to speak about Lensational’s work at the nexus of gender & climate alongside inspiring visual activists.
In 2021, Lensational embarked on a pioneering project with the National Adaptation Plan Global Network, aiming to elevate the stories of women at the frontlines of climate change to policy markers in Kenya and Ghana. We were very excited to share more about this new programme, and to represent our cohort of women, on the New York Times’ stage. Watch a recording of the event here
