Virtual participation at the 2016 AWID Forum

There are a number of ways to participate in the Forum online, whether you’re there in person or virtually.

Listen to live plenary broadcasts

Listen in real-time as plenary speakers address critical, multi-issue and cross-movement topics.
Live audio broadcasts will feature each of the five plenaries in six languages (Spanish, Portuguese, French, English, Russian, Arabic).

Tune in now

The plenaries will explore our current realities, experiences of solidarity and resistance, the power of collective resource mobilisation, and how we can co-create our Feminist Futures.

If you’re feeling inspired, we invite you to create content based on any of the themes addressed in the plenaries, and submit it to us at contribute@awid.org, for possible publishing on our blog after the Forum. We accept various types of content including video blogs, audio, Opinion Editorials (Op Eds), illustrations and blog posts.
