The coalition and local partners of the programme #Women2030 will be present at the European Development Days in Brussels, on 5 and 6 June 2018, on their stand number 79, to facilitate dialogues with local partners from Africa, Latin America, Asia and Caucasus, and to showcase results after 2 years of implementation.
#Women2030 coalition and local partners will be present at stand nr 79 to engage with visitors of the EDD; 10 MEPs and heads of divisions of the European Commission have confirmed their attendance.
Feminists from a.o. Georgia, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda and Paraguay will share their priorities for women’s rights and gender equality, and what EU policies should be strengthened to achieve inclusive sustainable development. They will address three topic areas in the course of the two days: 1) Women’s rights and financing for development, co-organised with WO=MEN; 2) Circular economy: Chemicals, Waste, Water, Sanitation, Energy; co-organised with WECF Georgia and Gender and Water Alliance, and 3) Sustainable development: Forests, Biodiversity, Energy, Climate organised with Global Forest Coalition.
Tools, reports, campaigns and other resources that have been elaborated to build capacity and support the engagement of women’s rights and gender equality organisations will be showcased. Visitors will be able to engage in the great gender equality quiz, and join the photoshoot action, based on the campaigns #HerstoryOfChange and “Defend the Defenders” all along the event.
