Generation Equality Forum in Paris is almost here

Updates: registration is still ongoing, the program is out now, and the Beijing+25 Memories & Messages e-book is now online

The Generation Equality Forum from June 30 to July 2 will be held in Paris and virtually. 

In what is projected as the largest global feminist gathering since the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing in 1995, the Generation Equality Forim in Paris will see world leaders and activists coming together to make game-changing commitments and bold actions to push forward gender equality. 

 

The Paris Forum will unveil a Global Acceleration Plan for Gender Equality, formally launch six Action Coalitions and a Compact on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action, and announce new equality initiatives focused on health, sport, culture and education.

 

These global, multi-stakeholder partnerships are expected to create impact for women and girls everywhere through initiatives and investments to bridge the most critical and persistent gender equality gaps.

 

Registration has been extended and will remain open during the Forum.

 

 

The program has also been made available so participants can plan their participation among the 90 events involving 500 panelists. Participants are also advised to review the community rules for the Forum. 

 

The online book of memorabilia from the 1995 Beijing Conference and anecdotes of women's efforts to forward gender equality then and now has also been made available to the public. The 148-page book is a visual easy-read, containing photos and videos, some will take the reader to a trip down memory lane. Contributions from women from Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Cameroon, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, India, Nepal, Nigeria, Philippines, Sweden, UK, and US made up the memento.
