2022 WOMEN4HEALTH MANIFESTO: GENDER AND A HEALTHY, GREEN ECONOMY
As societies and economies recover from the global pandemic, we have a golden opportunity to address multiple linked societal challenges at once. The measures we implement for pandemic resilience can also address the most significant long-term public health challenge of all: climate change.
Since its inception in 2005, the Women’s Forum has emerged as the leading international platform for transforming the power of women’s voices and perspectives into forward-thinking economic and policy initiatives for societal change.
During our annual Women’s Forum Global Meeting, we assemble a worldwide community of top business leaders, lawmakers and agents of change from numerous sectors of the economy.
With representatives from over 175 countries and opportunities for executive networking on an international scale, the gatherings serve as both think tanks for effective decision-making and as showcases for our initiatives.
The 17th annual Women's Forum Global Meeting will take place on 29-30 November 2022 in Paris, France. We will engage our community of leaders and change makers on key issues of our post-pandemic world, from the climate crisis to the rise of global conflicts.
Under the theme Time to act we will prioritize the "HOW": How can we facilitate human connections that will strengthen equity in the world and set a standard for fair solutions?
This year we are focusing on 3 main pillars: climate, health and peace. The urgency to tackle the far-reaching consequences of climate change has been expressed by multiple actors across politics, economy and society at the international level. The Covid-19 pandemic, as well as increasing threats on women’s sexual and reproductive rights, have highlighted the necessity to take action for inclusive health systems globally. The rise of conflicts and violence has stressed the importance, more than ever, to address the needs of women and girls and implement gender-sensitive peace processes. We are convinced that international and multi-stakeholder cooperation is essential to finding equitable and inclusive solutions, particularly around 3 crucial areas: climate, health and peace.
