Are you willing to move beyond your comfort zone? To question your usual thinking? To engage with actors outside of your every day activism or workplace? Are you ready to build alliances across boundaries so that together we can transform economic power?

Through the 2012 AWID Forum, we aim to explore how economic power is impacting on women and the planet, and to facilitate connections among the very diverse groups working on these issues from both human rights and justice approaches so that together we contribute to stronger, more effective strategies to advance women’s rights and justice.


Submit Your Proposal

Join us at the 2012 AWID International Forum and be part of deepening our understanding of economic injustice, equipping ourselves to engage in economic debates, and devising strategies to transform and reclaim economic power.
