We are thrilled to announce that the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action (GAGGA) led by Fondo Centroamericano de Mujeres in partnership with Both ENDS and Mama Cash, has been selected as a member of the re:arc institute‘s 2023 Cohort! This membership is more than just an affiliation—it signifies our collective commitment to envisioning and forging innovative pathways against the pressing climate challenges of our time.
Our collaboration with re:arc marks a pivotal chapter in our journey as 2023 stands as the institute’s inaugural year dedicated to catalyzing new directions for architectures of planetary well-being.
It is an indisputable fact that grassroot climate solutions, especially those led by Indigenous, young, and rural women, yield impactful results. Yet, despite their invaluable knowledge and innovative land management practices, many women-led organizations face barriers accessing critical resources related to climate action. Over the years, GAGGA has been advocating women, girls, trans, intersex, and non-binary people’s rights to these very essential resources and highlighting the importance of gender-just climate solutions deeply rooted in local and ancestral wisdom. Teaming up with the re:arc institute provides a strengthened platform to amplify our mission and support further impactful solutions coming from all across the globe.
Founded in 2022, re:arc institute is a philanthropic association based in Copenhagen, Denmark, operating without geographical limitations. Understanding the urgency of this moment, re:arc institute resources the development of community-led solutions that address the root causes and consequences of climate breakdown and nurtures the creative reimagining of social and ecological systems. The institute provides direct donations to an annual cohort of nonprofit organizations, as well as commissioned resources to people and practices experimenting with diverse approaches that support architectures of planetary well-being. We are proud to have joined forces with an association that understands and actively addresses the urgency of our planet’s climate scenario.
