Abstract: Stemming from experiences in research and communication in the environmental field (climate changes, pollution, earth sciences, …) some considerations about gender dimensions in environmental research are illustrated. Multiple gender dimensions exist, expanding the boundaries and enriching the research itself. First dimension refers to the gender of researchers, from the few pioneers of the past to the huge number of women that today are active in environmental research providing original contributions. Another dimension is that of gender differences in the impact of environmental changes: several studies indicate how impacts of climate changes on women and men vary significantly, and this issue must be addressed when implementing policies. Moreover, one gender dimension refers to the epistemological level, addressing the feminist approach to science, with situated knowledges and citizen science. Another dimension is that of presence of women in environmental organizations, a presence arising new research questions about environmental protection and healthcare.
