Advancement of Women

Please note: This page is still under construction – please click here for a list of completed chapters. The People’s Agenda 21 Project is a 100% volunteer project created and designed by the One Community Team. We are working 1000′s of hours to keep developing its 40 chapters of sustainability to share for those interested in sustainability what is available and working around the world. Thank you for your patience.


The advancement of women as a group has tended to promote more attention to sustainability and so to alternatives that favor co-operative, non-hierarchical, organic and decentralized forms of social organization. The validation of sustainability, taken to mean the sustaining of life in all its forms, entails valuing the work traditionally performed by women in maintaining life-support systems – caring for the elderly, for the sick and for families. This presents a positive image of women who are empowered through their association with nature, its celebration and protection.  The full, equal and beneficial integration of women in all development activities emphasize women’s participation in individual and local ecosystem management and control of environment degradation.
