Highlights from the Young Women’s Advocacy Forum
More than 6,000 world leaders, influencers, advocates, academics, activists, and journalists will come together in Vancouver from 3-6 June with the aim of promoting and achieving progress for girls and women everywhere.
The conference will include a wide range of voices and will present new knowledge and solutions. It will focus on many key areas from health, nutrition, education, economic and political empowerment to human rights, good governance, and girls’ and women’s agency and equality.
WAGGGS and Women Deliver 2019
WAGGGS will be there, ensuring the issues that matter most to members are on the agenda. Our Girl Powered Nutrition and Action on Body Confidence programmes will be holding a pre-conference ‘Young Women’s Advocacy Forum’ to help youth delegates plan a project in their country and support them with practical advocacy, communication and media skills training.
Then, at the conference itself, through events, our WAGGGS booth and most importantly our 15 youth delegates we aim to make sure your stories are told and your voices are heard!
Not going to the Conference? Not a problem! There are lots of way to get involved.
