This is a joint initiative of the Government of the Brussels Capital Region, host of the Forum and the Metropolis Women International Network. This women network is a part of Metropolis, the World Association of Major Metropolises.
The main objectives of this international Forum are to promote a gender-sensitive approach and to present and discuss the best practices to empower women as citizens and decision-makers.
The event will draw over 700 participants: elected representatives, executives and decision-makers from central, local, metropolitan and regional governments, as well as organisations and academics from all over the world. We will discuss best practices and innovative policies and their impact on gender development and equal access to services in urban areas in order to make cities and metropolises liveable for all.
Keynote speakers will launch the event and tribute will be paid to certain exceptional women.
