Let's talk environmental conservation, protection and rehabilitation

Welcome to the Feminist and Women’s Movement Action Plan for Beijing + 25 thematic conversation series.

As we prepare to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Beijing, take stock of our progress towards achieving gender equality and examine the threats, barriers and gaps that remain, we do not have to reinvent the wheel. Let us use the Beijing Platform for Action, CEDAW and other human rights treaties, the SDGs, as well as a host of other international commitments such as the International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action, New Urban Agenda of Habitat, UN SC resolution #1325 and related resolutions and the Paris Climate Accord to measure our progress and make our demands clear.

You have been invited to these virtual dialogues because of your activism and deep passion for gender equality and women’s human rights.

Our goal is to build community and create new alliances. Let’s work together towards a transformative framework for a Feminist and Women’s Movement Action Plan (fwMAP).

The conversation today is an interactive, small-group video conversation about "Environmental conservation, protection and rehabilitation.”

“Environmental conservation, protection and rehabilitation” is one of six Thematic Working Groups that is part of the large global Beijing + 25 Advisory Committee Working Group.
