The campaign further aims to raise awareness and ignite a global conversation about the need for inclusive and sustainable programmes, policies and resources in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Beginning 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women and running until 10 December, International Human Rights Day, the campaign originated from the first Women’s Global Leadership Institute, which was coordinated by the Centre for Women’s Global Leadership, in 1991.

This year’s theme ‘’Leave No One Behind: End Violence against Women and Girls,’’ celebrates the unifying

nature of one of the essential principles of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, while emphasizing the importance of worldwide efforts to ‘’reach the furthest behind first.’’

It is intended the campaign will create advocacy opportunities to highlight one of the core visions of the 2030 Agenda, of a ‘’just, equitable, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world in which the needs of the most vulnerable are met.’’

Members of the Future We Need (FWN) group share with us a hugely valuable resource in the format of a series of pamphlets, one for each day of the 16 Days of Activism. You might like to print and circulate on a daily basis, in your office, community and networks, thus reminding ourselves and sharing the ‘Good News’ re. the campaign. The first seven pamphlets are below and the next five pamphlets will be available on the website later next week, followed by the final four.
