On the occasion of the 10th edition of the annual international meetings of United Cities France [Cités Unies France], entitled “Meetings on International Action of Local Governments”, held on 2-3 July 2019 in Paris, France, UCLG convened a working session on gender equality.
The Women4Climate conference, brings together inspiring women leaders from cities, business, investors, start-ups and the next generation of climate champions, to shape the climate future through innovative initiatives.
The programme for this year’s edition of the EDDs included different spaces and sessions, at which our organizations were represented to discuss the role of local and regional governments in developing and implementing gender-based policies to achieve gender equality at all levels.
We celebrate women’s grassroots activism and call for a partnership between activist and elected women. UCLG believes that the time is now for equality and wants to acknowledge the work done by all activists, as well as by grassroots women’s organizations, that
