Next phase of online discussion launched: Transformative policies and initiatives: promoting gender equality in all spheres of life”

UNESCO is prolonging its Beijing +15 online discussion until September 2010. The discussion will broaden the scope of debate, looking at “Transformative policies and initiatives: promoting gender equality in all spheres of life”. Participants will be asked to share their perspectives and expertise on policies, interventions and programmes aiming to advance gender equality in all spheres from economics, politics, and education, to culture and society.


The enthusiasm which greeted the online discussion on “Gender equality, education and training”; organized within the context of the 15th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action, highlighted the need for such interactive and dynamic fora, where critical issues of policy and practice related to gender equality can be debated amongst stakeholders.

The online discussion will broaden the scope of the debate, looking at “Transformative policies and initiatives: promoting gender equality in all spheres of life”. Participants will be asked to share their perspectives and expertise on policies, interventions and programmes aiming to advance gender equality in all spheres from economics, politics, and education, to culture and society.

As with the Beijing +15 discussion, the aim of this discussion is to:

1. inform policy debates and direction

2. allow participants from all corners of the globe to collaborate and share their research and best practices on gender equality initiatives.

This year, several key international fora are taking place where your voices and views can be shared with policy makers and decision makers; namely the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) conference in July and the Millennium Development Goals’ high-level summit in September.

So take part in the discussion and let your views on how to turn gender equality into a reality be heard at the highest level!
