From May 31 to June 6 we will launch the #ActuemosPorLaIgualdad Week of Action to raise awareness of young leaders and their activism, demonstrate why the Generation Equality Forum is important for all generations and how Coalitions to Action can accelerate concrete change for women and girls.
The Week of Action will engage a young generation to take action and broaden the dialogue on the way to the Generation Equality Forum, to be held in Paris from June 30 to July 2, 2021. The Forum aims to catalyze global change and progress on gender equality, and to encourage strong global commitments and investments in the rights of women and girls. It is organized by the governments of France and Mexico, together with youth and civil society.
We are raising our voices to ensure that everyone realizes how important and decisive this moment is, and to ensure that leaders from all sectors of society step forward at the event and commit to change.
Every day, UN Women ‘s global Instagram and Facebook accounts will host a / young activist and will be given the opportunity to speak about a specific topic area that they are passionate about. We encourage you to do the same for your corporate and personal accounts.
