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.

AGIP’s Generation Equality Commitments

News

AGIP is proud to work in partnership to achieve our commitment to amplify and support adolescent girls’ leadership in the ongoing Generation Equality process.

The Adolescent Girls Investment Plan (AGIP) is a global, intergenerational coalition working to affect change for adolescent girls by closing the persistent gap between resources, evidence, and commitments for adolescent girls.

Building on the recommendations in the Young Feminist Manifesto, AGIP will amplify and support adolescent girls’ leadership and the community-driven organizations central to their participation in the GEF process and ACs, support the Adolescent Girls Advisory Body and Youth Task Force to ensure that these spaces are girl and adolescent friendly and gender-inclusive, build the capacity of adolescent girls to develop and use evidence and best practice to inform their advocacy and support adolescent girls so they are centered in GEF accountability mechanisms and have meaningful engagement and co-leadership. Where gaps exist in processes, AGIP will create, resource, and advocate for meaningful participation, leadership, and decision making.

This is a collective AGIP commitment from Women Deliver, Plan International, Girls Not Brides, Amplify Girls, GAGE, She Decides, Malala Fund, and ICRW.
