Women4Climate: 3rd edition in 2019

This past February, under the gilded ceilings of Paris’ Town Hall, women mayors, business leaders and innovators from around the world were given center stage on climate action and the urgent role awaiting women. It was the 3rd annual Women4Climate conference and ELLE International, a founding partner of the initiative along with L’Oréal, had front row seats for the action.

Spawning from an idea to empower and inspire women in climate action, Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris along with former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg launched Women4Climate in 2016, an offshoot of the C40 group – one of the most influential global organizations for cities and climate – to support women mayors around the world advancing for the climate. Why mayors? Because they lead cities, and even though cities only account for less than two percent of the earth’s surface, they consume 78 percent of the world’s energy and are responsible for over 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.  According to Mayor Hidalgo, women must be a part of the policy-making around the climate: “In order to tackle climate change, we need more women in leadership positions.”

Then in 2018, Women4Climate launched the ‘Tech Challenge’, an international competition for women innovators of climate projects. Rounding up the contestants and their projects in Paris during the conference in February, Inna Braverman, founder of Eco Wave Power and Elodie Grimoin, founder of Urban Canopee, were chosen as the two laureates during a ceremony hosted by ELLE & ELLE Decoration International Director, Valéria Bessolo Llopiz.

It’s safe to say that the future of the planet lies in the hands of our cities, and our youth.

ELLE Women in Society Japan: 6th edition in 2019!

For the 6th consecutive year, on June 15th, ELLE Japan successfully hosted the ELLE Women in Society event, in Tokyo at Shibuya Hikarie. Through this one-day forum, ELLE Japan aims to encourage the success of women in Japan by helping them to realize their potential, to improve their performance and by supporting them to achieve work-life balance.

Themed “New era for women in a new world”, ELLE Women in Society conducted its sixth event, which is now one of the largest in Japan. Against the backdrop of our current world which faces acceleration in globalisation, changes in technologies including AI, and many social issues such as the declining birthrate and growing proportion of elderly people, the event proposed “attitude toward working” to the women of today.

Guest speakers currently active as leaders in various fields took the stage and gave special seminars. A wide variety of workshops were also offered, from lessons on applying makeup to improve your likeability, “smile lessons” in facial yoga, running sessions, and kick boxing exercise. A total of over 2,500 working women took part in the event, ending with a networking party.

This year also marked the 30th anniversary of the launch of ELLE in Japan, and a special kiosk with a row of archives had been settled. 

Once again, this 6th edition of ELLE Women in Society has been really enriching and inspiring. And rendez-vous is already set for 2020!

The Happiness Index

ELLE INTERNATIONAL LAUNCHES THE 2nd EDITION OF ITS WORLDWIDE SURVEY ON WOMEN AND THEIR HAPPINESS: THE HAPPINESS INDEX 

logo-happiness-index

The International Department of ELLE, the world number one upscale women media brand, has mobilised all of ELLE’s 46 international editions around a common worldwide project: “The Happiness Index”, an exceptional and global survey carried out online and on social networks of each of the international ELLE editions, in partnership with the IFOP institute.

For this outstanding initiative, ELLE gave the floor to women through a questionnaire on various aspects of their everyday life: the level and source of their happiness, the challenges and pressures they face, age, appearance, confidence in the future, discrimination or women’s status in society. When first launched in 2014, “The Happiness Index” had collected nearly 24,000 answers. The 2016 edition gathered more than 30 000, raising the survey to the rank of a true “barometer of women’s happiness around the world“. A world first!

All the results of this exceptional global study, conceptualised and coordinated by the team of the ELLE International Department in Paris, as well as the detailed analysis per country, were provided to each ELLE edition at the end of January. Each country may publish the survey in its print edition and online from mid-February. This project, adapted on different platforms and spread out throughout the world, will give rise to numerous editorial contents, specific to each edition.

Like all the initiatives developed by ELLE International, this ambitious project was made possible thanks to the unique and strong ties that unite the 46 editions of ELLE around the world.
