The Commission on the Status of Women is the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women. We are thankful to be able to utilize SCI's connections with the United Nations to amplify your voice and support for solar cooking to such a wide audience. 

There was so much interest in the CSW event that the maximum capacity on the registration platform has been reached. If you have already registered as an advocate through the CSW platform, you will still be able to join us there (please make sure you register for SCI's specific event as well).  If you did not already register through the CSW platform, please join us on SCI's Facebook page www.facebook.com/SolarCookers where we will try to simultaneously broadcast our event at that time.  Please follow Solar Cookers International on Facebook if you haven't already.  We will also try to share the recording widely afterward.  Thank you.

Special guest speakers include:
