Women at COP
A conversation on climate change and gender equality
The film follows five Brazilian women on their journey through the 2022 Climate Conference from the United Nations, COP 27. The convention took place in Sharm-el Sheikh, Egypt, marking Brazil’s return to world discussion.
Political leaders, environmentalists, Black women, indigenous women and entrepreneurs meet in the search for sustainability and solutions for the climate crisis. They add a careful look, experienced sensibility, intergenerational knowledge, diverse origins and a lot of competence.
They are: Marina Silva e Joenia Wapichana, who, a month later, were nominated, respectively, as Brazil’s Minister of the Environment and Climate Change and president of Funai; Vanda Witoto, the first Brazilian woman to be vaccinated against Covid and ancestry activist; Patricia Ellen, green economy entrepreneur who contributes to the current ecological transition plan and Kamila Camilo, activist and social entrepreneur.
The mini-documentary “Women at COP” followed their steps and registered the most important moments from this major reconnection in the global scenario, adding women’s voices and centering their perspectives;
The film’s premiere happens in Dubai at COP 28, a year after Egypt’s remarkable encounter, with the presence of the five Brazilian agents that echo the voices of female representation in the climate debate.
