Engendering metropolitan spaces in the context of Global Agendas

Maandag 25 juni 2018 08:30-13:30 | European Committee of the Regions - room JDE51 - Bâtiment Jacques Delors Rue Belliard 99-101 B - 1040 Brussels
Engendering metropolitan spaces in the context of Global Agendas

Metropolis affirms the need for developing and strengthening gender equality measures, processes and policies in order to build cities which take into account all voices and experiences. It is clear that the previous will be only achieved if gender equality plays a key role in the metropolitan agenda. Engendering metropolitan strategies, policies and spaces is a means for social transformation and for fairer and more inclusive societies.

Taking the Metropolis’ gender strategy into account, within the framework of Metropolis Women and Metropolis Observatory, next 25th June we will organise a launch session of the Issue Paper number IV, with the support of Brussels Capital Region, and that will bring together local elected representatives, practitioners and experts to discuss how to:

  • Place gender equality within the metropolitan agenda as an overall strategy to build models of governance which are plural and inclusive.
  • Make the right connections with gender issues arising from global agendas having an impact at the local level.

and to:

  • Identify the challenges and opportunities in relation to engendering metropolitan visions and strategies.

The session wil be held in French, English, Spanish and Netherland.

The presentation will take place at room JDE51 of the European Committee of the Regions, Brussels.
