25x25 storm the stage

06 March 2019

At the flagship event in Kathmandu, Nepal, the “25x25” were revealed to the world and they did it with style.

The “25x25” are 25 25-year olds, from 25 different countries, with lots to say about what has happened in the 25 years since the landmark International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) in Cairo in 1994.

Hailing from Argentina, Australia, Bhutan, Brazil, Ecuador, India, Ireland, Kenya, Lebanon, Lesotho, Malawi, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, The Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, the Philippines, Portugal, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Uganda, the USA and Zimbabwe, these dynamic young women, men and trans persons have much to say: about how ICPD has made the world a better place for women and girls, and what still needs to be done.
