The World We Want!
We've all heard about the Millennium Development Goals or MDGs, but the end date for that effort is 2015 - what happens after?
Well the UN has a project going on RIGHT NOW - The World We Want, and you can participate in one of the threads of the conversation on Gender Equality. It is the first of a series of e-discussions taking place as part of the Global Thematic Consultation on Addressing Inequalities in the Post-2015 Development Agenda at www.worldwewant2015.org/inequalities. The discussion on gender equality will run until 24 October 2012.
There are background papers too.
So join the conversation - and note Kate McInturff from Canada is one of the moderators.
The discussion is guest moderated by Ginette Azcona, UN Women.� Throughout the discussion she will be joined by guest moderators who will assist in responding to your questions and contributions, and guiding and summarizing the discussion. We are delighted to introduce the first of these guest moderators: Nicole Bidegain from Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN); Rosa G. Lizarde from the Feminist Task Force of the Global Call to Action against Poverty; Kate McInturff from Amnesty International (Canadian Section), and Ranja Sengupta from the Third World Network (TWN).
