The UCLG network is getting ready for CSW65 and preparing several important contributions on behalf of local governments and leaders. Read more in this news item on the relevant events and key messages!

Last year, the COVID-19 pandemic took over the local and international debate, particularly considering the need to take care of people, democracy and the planet for the future we want. In this context, the specific impact on all women, the relevance of gender-sensitive responses, and the role of women and feminist leaders to tackle and recover from this crisis have been important topics across UCLG’s agenda.

Feminist municipalism: Local to Global Women Leadership & Decision-making
At the occasion of the CSW65, UCLG will convene Local and Regional Governments’ Days to enable  iscussions and exchanges on the key role of the international municipalist movement to promote and achieve gender equality in all parts of the world. In collaboration with international organizations, civil society representatives, UCLG will organize a series of thematic sessions that illustrate the multi-dimensional impact of local feminist leadership to attain a just, sustainable and resilient world.
