2018 JCI Global Partnership Summit

“All the [Sustainable Development] Goals are intrinsically interrelated and interdependent. We believe that gender needs to be addressed and mainstreamed across all goals. Eradicating poverty irreversibly cannot be achieved without gender equality or climate action and vice versa.”

   — Amina Mohammed, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General

The Global Goals for Sustainable Development aim to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and combat climate change. As UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed points out, gender equality has a role in achieving each of the 17 goals. The keynotes and working sessions of this year's partnership summit will focus not only on Global Goal #5 Gender Equality but also on the role that equality plays in achieving the rest of the goals.

Join a group of forward-thinking active citizens in New York City on July 24-27 to explore how young people-working with partners in government, business and civil society-can actively advance gender equality in their home communities in order to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030.
