Stronger together at the UN #CSW67 parallel event on gender justice

Aggiornamento: 17 feb 2023

Regional Charters for gender justice in local communities are key tools to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 5 "Gender Equality". CEMR, COPPEM and UCLG Africa has developed the European, the Euro-Mediterranean and the African Charter, respectively. Now they are joining their forces by organizing a parallel event on gender justice at UN CSW67 next 6th of March. Experiences and challenges faced by our European, Mediterranean and African communities are are flying in NYC to the United Nations!


Stronger together! The Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), PLATFORMA, United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa) and the Standing Committee for the Euro Mediterranean Partnership of Local and Regional Authorities (COPPEM) are joining forces at the 67th edition of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). Each one has developed a regional Charter for local authorities to commit to gender justice and tackle inequalities through their policies, programmes and partnerships.


Through dialogues, debate and an exposition of the #Thinkonit campaign, participants will gain insights and inspiration on how regional Charters for gender equality are key to move from good intentions to effective and impactful change. We must start with local and regional governments to build gender justice and fairer societies.


Join us to hear from local and regional representatives about their experiences, the challenges they face and how they overcome them. Exchange on how local and regional governments, in cooperation with civil society and other stakeholders, can propose innovative ways to implement gender equality agendas and achieve the ambitious targets of the relevant Sustainable Development Goals.


You will find us on the 6th of March at the Church Center of the United Nations, 11th floor at 10.30 am EST.

Charters for equality in local life: they are not only about Local Authorities. They are about you and your rights too!
International bodies have a direct impact on local life: their support for Charters can drive gender justice forward
Promoting Charters for Equality: the best way States can show commitment and support a positive change in the status of women.
