A Resource Guide to People, Ideas and Information
compiled by the International Institute for Sustainable Development, Winnipeg in partnership with the Sustainable Development Research Institute, Vancouver.
In May, 1994, people gathered in Vancouver for the conference, Women and Sustainable Development: Canadian perspectives. At that time, we surveyed conference participants about their hopes for a sustainable future. We also approached for comment a number of Canadian women in SD leadership roles who were unable to attend Vancouver. This guide was compiled to present the views of these women, and to provide the context for their work, through documents on the major women's meetings over the past decade. Although orginally designed as a tool for women preparing for the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, September 1995, the information continues to be timely and current. .
