Generation Equality Forum, One Year On: Shifting Power and Resources to Adolescent Girls and Youth-led Organisations

Events

On 7th July 2022, the Adolescent Girls Investment Plan (AGIP) and Plan International, together with adolescent and youth leaders, hosted an intergenerational dialogue with Action Coalition leaders titled ‘Generation Equality Forum, One Year On: Shifting Power and Resources to Adolescent Girls and Youth-led Organisations’.

The invite-only, intergenerational dialogue aimed to explore what ‘good’ accountability for the implementation of the commitments made through the Generation Equality Forum (GEF) process looks like to girls. Participants discussed in detail what more could be done to implement commitments to urgently shift resources and power to young feminist and girls’ rights organisations and movements. Crucially, we aimed to curate a space to coalesce around opportunities and solutions – such as the ‘Girls’ Fund’ – for accelerating these shifts.

To accommodate those who missed out on the closed door event, we hosted a follow up event to launch the Summary Report and shared insights from conversations with adolescent girls, young leaders, action coalition leaders and commitment makers.
