8 March, International Women’s Day

We reaffirm our commitment to work towards a society where every person has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive, regardless of their gender.

The municipalities committed to the principles of the Educating Cities Charter firmly believe in equality between men and women, and recognize that education is a fundamental pillar to achieve this goal.

Through our urban policies and within our educational institutions, we work to promote this equality and to eliminate any barriers that prevent equitable access to training and employment opportunities. Likewise, we work to foster an environment that promotes values for the construction of a more just society, where caregiving, primarily carried out by women, is recognized, valued, and shared. Additionally, we promote the active participation of women in decision-making spaces and in the formulation of public policies to ensure they are taken into account.

In this edition, the theme chosen by the United Nations is: “Investing in Women: Accelerating the Process”. We join this celebration by sharing a selection of recent initiatives of interest that have been published in the BIDCE Experiences Bank, covering diverse areas from combating gender violence to promoting inclusive sports, employment, or comprehensive support.
