Perseverance and Partnership: Key to Ending Gender-based Violence

What does it take to survive extreme violence and discrimination? Indeed, what does it take to change the world? This plenary will bring together leaders who have triumphed over violence and discrimination and now lead efforts to end gender-based violence and champion human rights. The facilitated dialogue will explore what made each of the panelists a leader: resilience, determination, commitment to justice. Examples of the importance of partnership will be shared to illustrate and catalyze further action from local to global level. How does one become a good partner and a collaborative leader? What will sustain partnerships and leaders in the struggle to end gender-based violence by 2030?

Climate change, Adaptation and Justice

Climate change disproportionately affects populations in the Global South, despite their lower contribution to the root causes of this global crisis. As prevention and adaptation efforts progress too slowly, young people across the globe are stepping up to the challenges of climate change by speaking out, as well as educating and mobilizing their communities. This session offers a point-counterpoint debate between national leaders and young climate activists on the challenges of action, the need for partnerships, strategies for adaptation and resilience, and the future of climate justice.
