Calling young feminists 📢 Are you the next leader of Generation Equality’s Action Coalitions?

The call for youth-led organisations and movements to lead the Action Coalitions for Generation Equality has been reopened by UN Women. Originally very few youth-led organisations applied to lead the coalitions, which has now led to this reopening of the call.

What are Action Coalitions?
Action Coalitions will be vital to a strong, vibrant and results-driven constituency of partners. UN Women is the overall convener of the Generation Equality Action Coalitions.

  • Gender-Based Violence
  • Economic justice and rights
  • Bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR)
  • Feminist action for climate justice
  • Technology and innovation for Gender Equality
  • Feminist movements and leadership

What is required of leaders of Action Coalitions?
The criteria for all leaders of Action Coalitions is as follows:

  • Evidence of commitment to the theme of Action Coalition, either through past work or a new vision.
  • A ground-breaking five-year commitment relevant to the Action Coalition theme that demonstrates a vision for change.
  • Active engagement in the design of the Action Coalition blueprint alongside annual tracking and reporting as part of regular reporting. In addition, all Action Coalition leaders will be strongly encouraged to attend an annual event at the UN General others and mobilise additional support for the Action Coalition theme.
  • Youth-led organisations are not expected to make any financial contribution or commitment.

Why should you apply?
Youth is one of the pillars for the Generation Equality Forum, and this will be a great opportunity to lead feminists and activists around the world, putting young person’s rights at the centre of all commitments. You’ll get to network with decision-makers and feminist movements, and really have a chance to engage meaningfully in 5 year-plan actions.
