The Tunis forum on gender equality:

April 24 - April 26

Ensuring inclusivity and equality: making international commitments a reality on the ground

The Tunis Forum will take place one year before the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, as well as one year before the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 which set the standard for women, peace and security. The Tunis Forum will also take place before the first Global Sustainable Development Report is presented to the autumn summit on the SDGs and will be an opportunity to integrate and connect the key elements of these processes and highlight the important role that civil society can play. The Tunis Forum will also explore the potential transformative role of women participating in local spaces/local government; in helping render cities safer for women; in working towards more sustainable cities and in re envisioning transportation systems and public spaces so that they respond to the differing needs of all sections of the population, whatever their gender, age or physical ability. It will also provide a platform to explore the role of new trends in innovation and technology in encouraging women’s economic empowerment.
