Are you a woman concerned about climate change? Would you like to see government take more action to protect the environment—and would you like to make your views known to MPs? If so, then please complete the following survey. You do not have to be a member of either organisation to take part.
It will only take 10 minutes of your time but we hope it will make a lasting impact on future government environmental policy.
The results of this survey will be analysed and presented at the House of Commons as part of the Women’s Manifesto on Climate Change, prepared by the Women’s Institute (WI) and the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN). We will also be publishing the survey results on both the WI and WEN websites and further publications.If you are unfamiliar with any of the terms used in this survey, please click here to read a short glossary.

The NFWI has a long standing commitment to farming and community sustainability in England and Wales. We have been concerned for some time about the prices local producers are paid for their produce.
WI members voted overwhelming in favour of the following mandate at the 2005 AGM:
"This meeting urges WI members to do all in their power to raise public awareness of the unfair difference between the retail prices of milk and the price paid to the farmer."

The eyes are the mirror of the soul, mind and body- or so we are told. But this may actually have more truth in it that people think. Lucinda Miller of Nature Doc talks to the Fulham WI on how 'Naturopathic Iridology' is the hip diagnostic tool of today. ridology is not a new therapy and was discovered in the 1800s by a young boy called Igantz Von Peczely who caught an owl in his garden. The boy noticed that a black line rose in the owl's eye after it broke its leg during the struggle. Von Peczely kept the bird until it had regained its health and then observed that cracked white lines were noticeable across the black area of the owl's eye. When Von Peczley became a physician he was able to study the irises of his patients and from there developed the idea that there is a relationship between tissue changes in the body and the marking that appeared and disappeared in the iris.
Iridology today is the study of the irises to determine information about the body's genetic strengths and weaknesses, personality type, levels of inflammation and toxaemia, efficiency of systems and organs and the likely causes of symptoms and illness. This analytical tool provides detailed 'insider' information on the individual which makes prescribing detoxes, nutritional programmes and herbal prescriptions increasingly accurate and effective.
