Applications are open now for our next cohort of 30 incredible emerging environmental women leaders to take part in our Women’s Earth Alliance Grassroots Accelerator in Indonesia in 2019 in Bali, Indonesia!

THE ACCELERATOR

Mother Jungle partners with the Women Earth alliance to empower even more woman on a global scale, via a program called Woman’s Earth Alliance Grassroots Accelerator. This blended learning, action-oriented accelerator will convene a powerful group of women leaders who are out front-fiercely protecting our water, food, air, forests, land, scared sites, indigenous lifeways, and future generations. By investing in these leaders to scale their solutions for change, we are creating the conditions for an inclusive, safe, and thriving world, starting in our communities and rippling outward. As an Indonesian based organisation we felt the urge to join this movement. As the fifth largest producer of greenhouse gases, Indonesia’s emissions rose 3% last year, nearly erasing the progress that several other nations made towards limiting the average global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius over the next 12 years. Women in Indonesia experience the brunt of these climate disruptions and have therefore stepped forward as key leaders in designing solutions to critical issues, such as palm oil extraction, plastic pollution, and sea level rise.

In recognition of the critical role that Indonesia women play in environmental and climate leadership, both nationally and internationally, and the acute support they need to grow their impact, we are launching the Women’s Earth Alliance Grassroots Accelerator in Indonesia in 2019.
