On 8 March, Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) will launch the Women2030 website, on the day we celebrate women across the world and our mother planet.
The #women2030 project is being implemented in 52 countries across different regions of the world. It is led by a coalition of 5 women and gender network organisations collaborating to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a gender-equitable and climate-just way. The coalition is part of a 5-year framework partnership agreement with the European Commission’s International Cooperation arm (DEVCO) called “Women CSOs implementing SDGs Agenda 2030.”
WECF and its members are more than ever engaged in bettering the situation of women across the world and that of the environment. Stories of incredible women from all over the world and of all professions, working to achieve gender equality and sustainable development goals, have been collected to illustrate the behaviour we all need to strive towards to achieve long-term social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Consequently, International Women’s Day on 8 March will be a celebration of those women who give hope to many other underrepresented women and communities, and who embody this hope for a fairer and more just future when it comes to women’s human rights and gender equality.
Women Engage for a Common Future (WECF) is an international network of over 150 women’s and civil society organisations implementing projects in 50 countries and advocating globally to shape a just and sustainable world; our Common Future
