ABOUT THE FORUM

The Generation Equality Forum is a global meeting in favor of gender equality, 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 will open in Mexico City (Mexico) and will conclude in Paris (France) on dates yet to be confirmed. This is due to adjustments in the context of the Covid-19 health emergency.

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 be an international public dialogue for urgent action and accountability on gender equality; it will celebrate the power of women’s rights activism, feminist solidarity, and youth leadership to bring about transformational change. It will enable real-time connection around the world through interactive satellite sessions using technology to maximize participation.

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.
