Gender-Equal Cities: Lessons learnt and future perspectives
Building sustainable, just cities is one of the defining challenges of our times, one that we are still struggling to respond to. However, one thing is clear: we can’t afford to ignore the potential of half of the population in addressing this question. In this webinar you will find out what a gender-equal city looks like, how looking through a ‘gender lens’ benefits everyone, and what steps can be taken to initiate changes in your own city.
Drawing upon URBACT’s Gender Equal Cities initiative and practical experiences from the cities of Umeå (Sweden), Rosario (Argentina) and Fredericton (Canada), we will discuss examples of gender-sensitive urban planning, look at anti-discrimination campaigns and address some common myths around gender equality.
