By March 6, 2022 No Comments

The United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day will be held virtually on 8 March 2022, from 10.00 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. EST.

The theme for the United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day 2022 (IWD 2022) is Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow.

The year 2022 is pivotal for achieving gender equality in the context of climate change, and environmental and disaster risk reduction, which are some of the greatest global challenges of the twenty-first century. Without gender equality today, a sustainable future, and an equal future, remains beyond our reach.

This year’s IWD Observance is in recognition and celebration of the women and girls who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation and response, and to honor their leadership and contribution towards a sustainable future.

Special guests include climate icon Dr. Jane Goodall, and two women that Time magazine has named among the 15 women who will save the world, Dr. Katharine Wilkinson and Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim.

The United Nations’ Observance of International Women’s Day will take place online on 8 March 2022 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. EST. RSVP by 07 March 2022!
