Call for Forum Activities

The AWID Forum offers a space for deep discussion, exchange and inspiration.

We see it as an initiative that is co-created by feminist movements - it challenges and strengthens our movements and promotes coordinated engagement and action. Our last Forum in Bahia, Brazil, brought together 1800 feminists from 120 countries around the world. 

The 14th AWID International Forum will take place on October 14-17, 2020 and will offer participants many ways to actively engage in different, creative spaces.

This call for activities is an invitation to develop the official program with us.

How to share your proposal

If you have a feminist reality that you would like to share, we invite you to submit your proposal. We are looking for interactive and creative activities that celebrate and share feminist realities that are truly propositional, powerful and infuse us all with hope and energy towards transformation!

Applications are welcome until January 31, 2020.

What you need to know before you submit your proposal:

(You may need to select your language in the top right corner on the proposal platform)

As part of our commitment to accessibility in all aspects of the AWID Forum we are accepting audio/ video formats for those individuals/ organizations/ groups who can't submit a written application. If you choose to send your proposal in an audio/ video format, kindly follow the same order to answer the questions as detailed in the Activity Proposal Form. Thank you! 


What happens once I submit my proposal?

Activity proposals will initially be screened by AWID staff.

Organizers of shortlisted proposals will then be invited to participate in a voting process, to choose among the shortlisted activities. Those with the most votes will be included in the Forum program. AWID may make a few adjustments to the final selection to ensure our program has an adequate balance across regions, constituencies, issues and methodologies.  

Our Forum Content and Methodology Committee will reach out to the organizers of selected proposals to support them in further developing their activities.

Please send us your activity proposal before the end of your day on January 31, 2020.

Sorry, we will not be able to consider any proposal sent after that date… and we mean it!

In early December we'll host a Facebook live conversation to answer all your questions about this call for activities. Follow us on Facebook and stay tuned for more details!
