Monday, 19 December 2011

Gender equalityA new web portal with a focus on climate change and gender equality has been released. The web portal "Equal Climate - Gender and Climate Change from a Nordic Perspective" gives views on how integrating a gender perspective can bring about more efficient solutions for sustainable development and climate change.

The portal gives information on the links between gender, traffic, energy, consumption and nutrition. Women and men have different kinds of consumer habits, recreational activities and attitudes towards climate issues. Men favour for example technical solutions, while women prefer changing their own behaviour.

The web portal has been developed in gender-equality cooperation of Nordic Council of Ministers, and it is part of the Finnish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2011.
