Generation Equality: An SDG Accelerator
Mark your calendars: The Midpoint Moment for Generation Equality will take place at the UN HQ in New York City and online on 17 September 2023.
The event, convened by UN Women and the co-leadership of the Governments of Iceland and Tanzania, will be a critical moment for Generation Equality as it seeks to assess, energize and grow its bold agenda for gender equality acceleration, building from its launch at the Generation Equality Forum in 2021. The 2023 Generation Equality Midpoint event provides an important opportunity to mobilize sustained attention to and investment in gender equality as an accelerator for the SDGs at a time when women’s rights are under increased threats globally and progress has stalled and reversed in more than 30 percent of the SDGs and will be featured as part of the SDG Acceleration Day.
