Women activists from South Asia are aiming to save Mother Nature from what they call the onslaught of consumerism by advocating a “green” economy.
“The resources of the earth are for the welfare of all, not the profit of a few. They generate creative and dignified livelihoods and provide a basis for poverty alleviation,” the South Asian Women’s Network said in a statement on Sunday
The statement was issued at the end of their July 2-3 conference in Dhaka, jointly organized by the South Asia Foundation, Manusher Jonno Foundation and Jamia Millia Islamia University in New Delhi.
The conference, entitled “Women of South Asia and a Green Economy,” unanimously voiced support for a green outlook as a way of improving the quality of life for all and to oppose today’s economic principles that are discriminatory and marginalize the poor and women.
