The Battle For Global Gender Equality By 2030 – Is It Possible.
Join us at this joint meeting with London Met students, GlobalNet21 and The Sustainable Development Goals Network to discuss Gender Equality – one of the goals supported by the United Nations and to be realised globally by 2030. This is one of several events we are running in March in support of International Woman’s Day. This will be one of our monthly informal discussions supported by the UK African Diaspora Forum and others to discuss some of the vital issues that face us all in the 21st Century. Goal 5 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals is to “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.” While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world. Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large. This will be a discussion led by the team at the Sustainable Development Goals Network led by Carolina Karlstrom and Amanda Weilenmann together with Julliet Makhapila from GlobalNet21 and the UK Africa Diaspora Forum. Julliet Makhapila co-ordinates these events for us and facilitates the evening and is great at keeping the meetings focussed and making everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. So come along and join us and also contact Julliet if you would like to help out and see if we can make these events a success. This will be held in TM1-45 a new teaching spaces fitted out with the latest teaching technology and modern configurable classroom furniture to accommodate different styles, group work activity and flexible independent learning.

Recreating Our Futures

GlobalNet21 is a leading forum in the UK for discussing the major issues in the 21st Century. We share a common concern for the sustainability of both our planet and the people on it. With almost 20,000 network members in the UK and abroad, we are making the debate, and democracy, more accessible by enlarging the Public Square and using social networks.

As well as a network of individuals we have also set up a collaborative network of organisations to exchange good practice and transfer knowledge so that we can learn from each other. This network is cross boundary and includes local authorities, housing associations, universities, community groups and social enterprises. Our aim is through dialogue to celebrate diversity and develop community self-resilience and sustainability at a time of unprecedented social and environmental change.
