Gender, Science and Sustainable Development: The Impact of Media - From Vision to Action
10 Feb 2017 -  On the occasion of the 2nd commemoration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their targets are expected to stimulate action and to guide a sustainable development of the planet, embracing its economic, social and environmental dimensions in a balanced way to spearhead societies towards a sustainable and equitable future. An extraordinary level of political will has been revealed to shift the world onto a more sustainable and resilient path, building on the unfinished agenda of the Millennium Development Goals, with the participation of all countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnerships. Making the inclusive world envisioned in the 2030 Agenda a reality, and to ensure effective implementation for people, planet, and prosperity, the empowerment of women in science and the participation of the media are required.
The Second Commemoration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, is organized by the Royal Academy of Science International Trust and the Ministry of Social Dialogue, Consumer Affairs and Civil Liberties of Malta, and is held at the United Nations Headquarters, during the Maltese Presidency of the European Union Presidency.
