The Gender Equality Forum | Call for Youth Participation


The Gender Equality Forum is an engaging event that brings together individuals to address the EU’s most urgent gender equality issues.

People can join online or in Brussels on December 10-11, 2024, to talk about the future of gender equality in the EU up to 2030.

The European Institute for Gender Equality will pay for up to 50 young participants (aged 18 to 30) to attend the Forum in person.

Young advocates for gender equality who are dedicated to making the EU fairer are encouraged to speak up at this event.

The topics

The Forum will focus on two main themes:

  2. Addressing gender-based violence in the EU: ongoing and new challenges.

The event will feature debates, workshops, masterclasses, inspirational talks, and more. Participants will include representatives from EU institutions, civil society organizations, human rights defenders, artists, and others.
