What is the Generation Equality Forum?

The Generation Equality Forum is a global gathering for gender equality, convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the Governments of Mexico and France with the leadership and partnership of civil society and youth. The Forum will kick off in Mexico City (Mexico) from 29 to 31 March 2021 and will culminate in Paris (France) in June 2021.

 

The Generation Equality Forum is a multi-stakeholder global gathering designed to propel ambitious new global commitments to advance gender equality and energize movement building. A milestone event, it will bring together a wide variety of actors – including governments, international organizations, the private sector, civil society, and youth – to accelerate action for gender equality, including the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.

When and where will the Generation Equality Forum take place?

The Generation Equality Forum will take place in Mexico City, Mexico from 29 to 31 March 2021 and then in Paris, France in June 2021. The dates for the Forum in Paris will be announced on International Women’s Day. Due to the COVID-19 health emergency, both Forum will be taking place predominantly online.

What is the link between the Generation Equality Forum in Mexico City and Paris?

The Generation Equality Forum in Mexico City has been designed as the kick-off and Global Call to Action. It will be a virtual catalytic moment to initiate public awareness and mobilization and will energize the drive towards securing the commitments that will be launched at the Paris Forum in June.

Who can participate in the Generation Equality Forum?

Anyone with a commitment to advancing global gender equality may register to participate in the Forum. It will bring together people from civil society, academia, collectives, governments, businesses, cities, parliaments, trade unions, media and more, with a focus on intergenerational and multi-stakeholder partnerships.

 

Registration for the Forum will be open online with a special focus on civil society and youth. Those registrations will be subject to a validation process by the organizers to guarantee that participation in the Forum has intersectional, intergenerational, and multi-stakeholder balance, with equally balanced regional participation.

 

The Forum’s online platform will grant different levels of participation. More active participation will be prioritized for invited speakers, with a special focus on feminist civil society and youth, while including Member States, international organizations and philanthropies, as well as Action Coalition partners and panel’s guests, prioritizing regional balance and intersectionality.

How do I register?

Applications to register will open online on 17 February 2021. The registration link will be available here. Participants from all sectors will be able to apply directly on the virtual platform. Confirmation of your participation will be sent once your application has been validated.

What will happen at the Generation Equality Forum in Mexico?

The Forum in Mexico will include three days of in-depth thematic dialogues, ‘Action Coalition’ sessions, cultural moments, and other speaker networking opportunities, organized with a civil society lens. It will highlight the need for the Generation Equality agenda, issue a global call to action to accelerate gender equality implementation, and energize civil society and feminist movements in the drive towards securing commitments to propel acceleration in the gender equality agenda.

What is the design of the event?

The Generation Equality Forum in Mexico will be held virtually. The plenaries and breakout sessions will be action-oriented spaces to drive awareness around the imperative for action on gender equality, especially in a COVID-19 context. The program is designed around four critical themes:

 

  • Power: The focus of the opening plenary will showcase the power and voice of feminism, diverse civil society, grassroots women, and youth. This session will also stress the importance of public engagement and multi-stakeholder partnerships to achieving gender equality within the context of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

  • Crisis and Hope: Structured in breakout sessions, including:
  • Thematic Dialogue sessions focused on the structural inequalities and crises that underlie the implementation gaps of the Beijing Platform for Action and its critical areas of concern.
  • Resilience and healing spaces for intergenerational and intersectional inspirational dialogue on transformative power.
  • Networking spaces to showcase and learn from good practices, advocacy tools, and mobilization experiences and challenges across the world.
  • Cultural and creative spaces to promote inclusive citizen engagement.

 

  • Action: Spaces for the leaders of each of the six Action Coalitions and the Board and catalytic Members of the Compact on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action to share their vision, present the Action Coalition Blueprints, and enhance international mobilization in the drive for global commitments.

 

  • The closing segment will be a stage for civil society to present its Manifesto to the Forum. The closing will also kick off the global Call to Action to drive commitments from Mexico City to Paris.
What is the outcome of the Generation Equality Forum in Mexico?
  • Kick-off a highly visible global Call to Action and drive towards commitments.
  • Raise awareness of the critical need for gender equality investment and the imperative for an intersectional and intergenerational gender equality agenda.
  • Galvanize civil society and youth in the drive towards commitments.
  • Elicit ideas for strengthening gender justice and youth movements.
  • Launch the blueprints of the Generation Equality Forum Action Coalitions.
  • Present priority actions for the Compact on Women, Peace and Security and Humanitarian Action.
How can I register for specific sessions?

Does registering guarantee my attendance?

While the Generation Equality Forum is open for all those that are interested in gender equality as well as girls’ and women’s rights, the Forum launched from Mexico City will grant different levels of participation, from public audiences to speakers and active participants, depending on the sector and commitment to the Forum’s goals.

 

Registrations will be subject to a validation process by the organizers to guarantee that participation in the Forum has intersectional, intergenerational, and multi-stakeholder balance, with equally balanced regional participation.

What is the link between the Generation Equality Forum and the Action Coalitions?

What is the link between the Beijing Platform for Action and the Generation Equality Forum?

The year 2020 marked the 25th anniversary of the adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the most comprehensive global agenda to achieve the empowerment of women and girls in all aspects of life, as well as the achievement of gender equality. Twenty-five years after its adoption, public rhetoric on gender equality has not been matched by action and implementation. While there has been important progress, real change has been slow and, so far, no country has achieved gender equality. Today, the world faces an unprecedented set of challenges that threaten the advancement of girls’ and women’s rights, including the rising gender inequality caused by COVID-19.

 

The Generation Equality Forum aims confront and respond to the gender equality crisis by spurring financial and political commitments for gender equality and taking ambitious steps towards the full implementation of the critical Beijing+25 framework.

How does the Covid-19 health emergency affect the Generation Equality Forum?

The Generation Equality Forum, like any international event, has suffered changes due to the Covid-19 health emergency. The date for the Forum in Mexico is now set for 29 to 31 of March 2021 and all activities will be held on an online platform to mitigate any health risks.
