On 25 June Metropolis organizes a launch session of the Issue Paper number IV “Engendering metropolitan spaces in the context of Global Agendas” with the support of Brussels Capital Region. It will bring together local elected representatives, practitioners and experts. The launch session is to be read in light of Metropolis' gender strategy and the framework of Metropolis Women and Metropolis Observatory.
- Identify the challenges and opportunities in relation to engendering metropolitan visions and strategies.
Metropolis affirms the need for developing and strengthening gender equality measures, processes and policies in order to build cities which take into account all voices and experiences. It is clear that previous will be only achieved if gender equality plays a key role in the metropolitan agenda. Engendering metropolitan strategies, policies and spaces is a means for social transformation and for fairer and more inclusive societies.
