Sustainability as Social Justice / Dominican Republic​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

9 July 2020

30 June - 11 July 2020                                                                                                                                                      UWC Short Course for Girls                                                                                                                                                

At the Mariposa DR Foundation we know that girls are the most powerful force for change in our community, and investing in girls will change the world. But looming over their day-to-day lives is the reality that a direct hit from a category five hurricane would wipe away homes and decimate the tourist industry, which is the heart of Cabarete’s livelihood. Climate change disproportionately affects women and girls around the world, and for this reason their voices need to be included in decision making about the environment. It is with this backdrop that we invite young women, the future leaders of their community, from across the globe to explore issues of girls’ rights and sustainability and why they go hand in hand in this engaging UWC short course.
