2015 Millennia2015 Action Plan for Women's Empowerment
WomenSport International has recently become aware of an opportunity to participate electronically, and in person, in a global exchange focused on women’s development, empowerment and health. The Division for Gender Equity, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and Destree Institute have formed an on-line process of gathering viewpoints from women globally as a method of foresight utilization for the implementation of the UN Millennium Development Goals. Three conference-style events form consensus-building landmarks for the MDG accomplishment; Liege 2008, Paris late 2011, New York 2015. Interspersed are several electronic fora serving to gather grassroots and national viewpoints and strategic suggestions. For further information, go to the link for this process www.millennia2015.org
