The 18th Conference of the Parties (COP 18) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place from November 26 to December 7 in Doha, Qatar’s capital city. There, world’s leaders will discuss the measures to address this crisis, one of the most serious crises facing humankind nowadays.

“As women, we are the ones who maintain hope. And I think that while we do this, we need to encourage many other women and tell them to dare to go out, to raise their voices, to avoid being afraid to speak.
