WOMEN ROLE AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE


ABSTRACT

Humanity, who has always desired to realize and sustain its natural and social existence from

past to present, has a pathetically superior attitude towards the nature. Scientists are constantly

giving warnings about the global climate change, as it is a matter of survival. These warnings

are actually an indicator of the fresh and fruitful sprouts of the seeds of wrath, a genius of

productiveness that has already been planted by humans. The role of women on this debate is

crucial, as they can change the way of thinking of everyone, by their reasoning, everyday acts

and behavior. The examples of Greta Thunberg and Dr. Vandana Shiva who are taking

activist action in order to point out the emergency of the situation are characteristic. The

power of women can affect significantly the public opinion regarding the issues of eco-justice

and environmental ethics. Also, by considering social consciousness, the role of religion,

through eco-theology, can be a bridge to connect the people with the nature. Furthermore,

education is a protagonist factor, especially if it is considered together with motherhood, in

terms of bringing to life the next generation, who has every right to live in a decent and clean

environment.
