Equipop: Getting ready for the next G7 in France!
Therefore, together with its partner CARE France, Equipop is launching a national consultation to collect contributions from civil society actors and to draw the attention of decision-makers on the need to pursue and to reinforce the commitments taken during the precedent G7 in Canada. As a first step, Equipop and CARE are organizing a kick-off event in Paris at the National Assembly on October 18th with representatives from civil society (NGOs, feminist associations, youth organizations), government, Parliament, private foundations and UN agencies. The event will showcase different panels focusing on SRHR, youth engagement, women’s economic and political empowerment. More than a hundred participants have signed up and there will be a Twitter tchat online beforehand to enable more SRHR advocates to join in.
This event is part of a longer-term advocacy strategy that will also include a series of consultation meetings and advocacy activities towards key decision-makers, throughout 2019. In this process, Equipop and CARE will be organizing the “W7” (Women7) Summit next Spring in France, making connections with the French G7 civil society taskforce as well as international broader initiatives.
