"Stretch and challenge" tasks require you to read a newspaper article and give your opinions on it, backed up with reasons. These tasks are designed to be more challenging than other activities on the Student Hub.
"Cop26: Women must be heard on climate, say rights groups"
This is a headline from the UK newspaper The Guardian on September 25th. Read the article here.
Then, answer these questions below:
- What is the Global Women’s Assembly for Climate Justice calling for?
- Why are their requests so important?
- Based on the article, do you think enough is being done to make COP26 inclusive of women's voices? What are the arguments that say yes, and what are the arguments that say no?
Extra challenge: What else would you need to find out to help you decide how inclusive COP26 was towards women? Can you do any research and report back with your findings?
