Understanding and integrating gender issues into debates, policy making and policy implementation is key to a more comprehensive approach to climate protection. As part of a European Commission project, ten cities in Finland, Sweden, Germany and Italy worked together to identify tools, processes and procedures that can contribute to promoting and supporting women in decision-making positions relevant to climate protection. Their aim is to offer ideas and suggestions to individual persons, departments and whole municipalities. The toolkit consists of 4 sections: Data-Facts-Arguments, which includes findings and results of the 'Climate for Change' project and background information from all over Europe; Tools for Promoting Women in Management and Executive Positions, consisting of implementation guidelines, instructions and suggestions as well as a variety of examples; a Gender Checklist helping individuals to look at their department from a gender perspective; and some leaflets and posters that can be distributed or displayed to promote awareness of the issue.
