Happy birthday GenderCC!

On the 23rd of August 2018, GenderCC celebrated its 10th Anniversary in the courtyard of the Weiberwirtschaft in Berlin, where the international secretariat is located. With more than 50 guests we looked back to the 10 years of GenderCC's history and listened inspiring presentations about the integration of gender into climate change policies and a panel discussion featuring friends and cooperation partners.

It was a wonderful evening and we are grateful and happy to have had you all here! Thank you so much for all the great support to prepare the event, awesome food by The Real Junk Food Project: Berlin, great music by Karukene, great conversations and ideas on future endeavours.
