This event, organized by UN Women in partnership with the Permanent Missions of Finland, Australia, and Norway, brings together young women leaders from different countries. In a Ted-like storytelling event, the young leaders share how they have overcome the barriers of gender and age discrimination and negotiate peace.
The presentations will be followed by a commentary from other contexts, including the Member State co-hosts and representatives who reflect what the international community can do to support young women and men in advancing peace and security.
Note: All participants and speakers who do not have a valid UNOG grounds pass must register via the UNOG registration system (INDICO). New users can create an account at https://reg.unog.ch/user/register, and those with accounts can log in. They must then register for a badge to the Palais Des Nations at https://reg.unog.ch/event/25892, and will receive a single badge valid from 7 to 9 November 2018 that allows them to attend all events of Geneva Peace Week 2018 without further additional registration. Badges can be picked up from 8 a.m. on 7 November 2018 onwards at the Pregny Gate of the Palais des Nations. Participants will be required to bring a photo ID along with the INDICO confirmation of registration.
