WHO IS WEN?
We are the Women's Environmental Network. A network of people taking action for a healthier planet. Our feminist values are at the heart of what we do - we believe that the fight for gender equality is inextricably linked to environmental, racial and social justice.
WHAT DOES WEN DO?
Wen works on issues that connect gender, health and the environment.
HOW DOES WEN WORK?
We campaign nationally as well as taking practical actions at a local level. Campaigns include Environmenstrual, exposing issues around harmful chemicals and promoting local food systems. Key to our approach is working with women at a local level, where we are based in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, on issues ranging from air equality, to community food growing.
Current work includes: the Environmenstrual Campaign, coordinating the Tower Hamlets Food Growers and Food Partnership. Running the Live Well cooking and growing classes in Poplar. The Soil Sisters project - bringing therapeutic horticulture to women's refuges in East London. Convening a Feminist Green New Deal policy paper and set of principles.
