Bringing Women a Global Voice: Jensine Larsen, World Pulse

Have Fun - Do Good

It's also the hottest issues on the world stage, whether it's what's going on in the Congo, or with the environment and climate change, but it's through the perspective of women, of leading women, Nobel Peace laureates, or a woman who is on an island and is experiencing the rising tide of climate change and speaking her life experience and a way to solve it. We brought professional empowerment mentors and coaches, and also professional editors.

Women's Global Green Action Network: An Interview with Melinda Kramer

Have Fun - Do Good

So our first exchange that we did with Global Exchange was called "Transformative Advocacy in Bolivia." We brought a group of ten environmental justice lawyers from throughout North America to work in partnership with grassroots women leaders in Bolivia, with the focus on sustainable agriculture and food security issues. But I had wonderful opportunities to be in nature, and to just be out in my own environment from a very young age.

The Global Fund for Women: An Interview with Kavita Ramdas

Have Fun - Do Good

She has been the recipient of many awards, including Fast Company's 2007 Social Capitalist Award, and the League of Women Voters' Women Who Could Be President Award. I think my favorite example of that is a women's group from the highlands of Bolivia who wrote to us maybe seven or eight years ago. Lastly, I would say the fourth issue that I think remains a very, very critical factor for women, and a very high priority, is the environment.
