On Tuesday 15 June 2021 between 16h45-17h45 the FEMM committee held an exchange of views on “The Generation Equality Forum, Paris“.

The Generation Equality Forum is a civil-society centred, global gathering for gender equality convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the governments of Mexico and France. Parliament will send one delegation to the Paris Forum (30 June - 2 July 2021).

Attended by Heads of State, the Paris Forum will convene governments, international organizations, civil society, youth, the private sector and activists from the entire world to make concrete, ambitious and sustainable commitments towards achieving gender equality. The Forum will also galvanize a multi-stakeholder ecosystem to advance gender equality ensuring sustainability and accountability.

Members debated expectations with Élisabeth Moreno, Minister Delegate for Gender Equality, Diversity and Equal Opportunities, France; Ambassador Yanerit Moreno, Executive Secretary of the Generation Equality Forum, Mexico and Asa Regner, Deputy Executive Director UN Women.
