Zonta Says WOW

Zonta Says WOW to being a Zonta member. Zonta is regenerating; we began transiting last biennium and continue in this biennium. International’s Strategic Plan, Resolution 2, is moving forward, and we want our district clubs open to new ideas and processes to energize current members and identifying potential members and community partners. We want you to find your Zonta Spirit!

Zonta Says NOW

Zontians in District 23 of Zonta International were inspired by the horrific bushfires in the summer of 2019/20, the lack of a national climate response plan, and research that showed that women and girls come off worst from the intense weather events caused by climate change. 5 June 2021 on World Environment Day, Zonta International shared our new statement on climate change, a major global crisis that has a negative impact on people and the environment around the world. ZI recognizes that climate change disproportionately affects women and girls, and action is needed from a gender equality perspective. As an organization committed to empowering women and girls globally and locally and promoting justice and universal respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, Zonta International is calling for action in favor of a fair and human rights-based approach to solve the crisis of climate change in the post-pandemic world and achieve greener, cleaner, and equal societies. ZI District 4 is following up this call, facilitating a workshop at the D4 Spring Summit to discuss, learn and participate in climate actions at local and region levels.

Come learn from Areas 1 & 2 awesome speakers!
