20190328_ Its time for gender equality

 

On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit — officially came into force. Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilise efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind. With this purpose, Dialogue Café Association is organising a cycle of debates focused on the SDGs and 2030 Agenda in order to contribute to its achievement and raising awareness. Sessions focused on Education, Gender Equality and Climate Change among other topics will be organised under this thematic umbrella.

In the framework of the International Women’s Day 2019, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, Dialogue CafĂ© would like to address one of the major challenges of the XXI century, the SDG5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls, by joining the Women´s Day Campaign #BalanceforBetter, hence dedicating a session to celebrate collective action working hard for gender equality, which is an essential element for economies and communities to thrive at all levels: political, economic, social, and cultural.

Join this session and share successful experiences and stories on some of the targets related to SDG5 such as fighting violence against all women and girls, promoting women´s participation and leadership at all levels of decision making, ensuring equal rights to economic resources, and enhancing the use of enabling technology for women´s empowerment.

Dialogue Café will invite representatives of social groups, communities, local authorities, civil society organisations, experts, women´s organisations and international organisations to discuss about how best we can truly make a positive difference for women everywhere.

This session, which will be held on 28 March from 15h30 to 17h London time.

UN Sustainable Development Goals – from global goals to local action 0 Reply

20150925-un-summit-01

The world in which we live is faced with so many challenges. Their scope is very wide and solutions are hard to be find. In every region of the world people are facing different obstacles and they because of that need different mechanism by which they can overcome those obstacles.

A good overview of those challenges is presented in a set of Sustainable Development Goals. Those are the main objectives that world leaders agreed upon. They should be resolved during the 2015-2030 time period. UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Mon clustered them into six main elements: dignity, prosperity, justice, partnership, planet and people. We can see from this that SDG-s really cover a wide range of issues that humanity as whole need to deal with. That’s the main reason why the role of UN is so important in fulfilling those objectives. Only the UN has the capacity of doing that effectively. And we can see prove of that in example of Millennium Development Goals whose impact was very successful at the end.

But, implementing those goals won`t be an easy task. This set of new goals is more wider and covers more than the previous one which expired in 2015. The main problem will be to focus on a local action that will be necessary when it comes to every among those seventeen goals. For example, we will not see an improvement in implementing clean energy strategy on a local level if there is no willingness of local and national authorities to do that. That`s why the partnership is so important in this story. We need to show a good example to all of those who are still skeptical about this issue. And they need to turn them into their benefits by learning from others. On the other side, UN will need to remain its strong leadership position when it comes to those questions. It is a global problem and only if world stand united in every aspect of it, we can see an improvement by the end of 2030.

For this purpose, Dialogue Cafe Novi Pazar organises the session ‘UN Sustainable Development Goals – from global goals to local action‘ on 28 January 2016 – From 15h00 to 16h30 (London time) with the participation of  DC Lisbon and DC Rio de Janeiro.
