Mexico announces the Generation Equality Forum confirmed dates
The Forum will take place in Mexico City in 29 – 31 March 2021
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Institute of Women announce that the launch of the Generation Equality Forum, postponed due to the COVID 19 pandemic crisis, will take place from March 29 to 31, 2021 in Mexico City.
The Governments of Mexico and France announced, in the framework of the 74th United Nations General Assembly, their intention to hold in 2020 the Generation Equality Forum, a global process convened by UN Women, under the leadership of civil society, in favor of gender equality. However, derived from the global health emergency, it was decided to postpone the meetings that were contemplated in both countries.
The Forum presents the opportunity to accelerate the implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, which constitutes the most comprehensive roadmap to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls in the coming years, in compliance with the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development.
