The Generation Equality Forum – Save the date!
Date: Tuesday, July 23, 2019
The Generation Equality Forum is a global gathering for gender equality, convened by UN Women and co-chaired by France and Mexico, with the leadership and partnership of civil society. The Forum will kick-off in Mexico City, Mexico, on 7-8 May 2020 and culminate in Paris, France, on 7-10 July 2020.
Twenty-five years after the historic Fourth World Conference on Women and the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most comprehensive blueprint to achieve women’s empowerment and gender equality, the Forum will take stock of progress and chart an agenda of concrete action to realize gender equality before 2030, as part of the groundbreaking, multigenerational campaign, “Generation Equality: Realizing women’s rights for an equal future”.
The Forum will be a global public conversation for urgent action and accountability for gender equality, celebrate the power of women’s rights activism, feminist solidarity and youth leadership to achieve transformative change. It will be connected in real-time across the world through interactive satellite sessions enabled through technology to maximize participation.
The Forum will reaffirm the value of multilateralism and bring together the leadership and participation of various stakeholders – civil society, governments, business, cities, parliaments, trade unions, media and more, focusing on intergenerational and multi-stakeholder partnerships.
The Forum will result in concrete partnerships and accountability for scaled-up and urgent action on the critical issues to achieve gender equality.
