Mexico Here We Come!

The Generation Equality Forum kicks off on Monday 29th March 2021 to 31st March 2021 in Mexico City, Mexico.

As a global meeting, convened by UN Women and co-chaired jointly by the Governments of Mexico and France with the leadership and participation of civil society, the Forum is planned to be an international public dialogue for urgent action and accountability on gender equality. It is also a platform to celebrate the power of women’s rights activism, feminist solidarity, and youth leadership to bring about much-needed transformational change. It is hoped that it will enable real-time connection around the world through interactive satellite sessions using technology to maximize participation.

Twenty-five years after the historical Fourth World Conference on Women and the adoption of  the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action ––the most comprehensive framework for achieving women’s empowerment and gender equality–– the Forum will take stock of progress and shape an agenda for concrete action to advance gender equality by 2030.

The Forum will also reaffirm the value of multilateralism and call for leadership and commitment from various stakeholders ––civil society, governments, academia, international bodies, collectives, community groups, business, cities, parliaments, trade unions, and the media, among others–– with an emphasis on intergenerational and multi-stakeholder partnerships.
