UN Women, France and Ireland are pleased to invite you to a series of dialogues on the following topic: “Evidence and experience: Adolescent Girls’ Education in the Generation Equality Forum.”
Organized in partnership with UNESCO, Plan International, the Global Partnership for Education, and the Malala Fund, this event will bring together Generation Equality Action Coalition leaders, policy-makers, civil society representatives and youth leaders and activists from around the world to highlight the role of education as a catalyst for gender equality, and a cross-cutting strategy to achieve the goals of the Generation Equality Forum Action Coalitions.
