Keeping you updated on our plans for the 14th AWID International Forum
Our thoughts are with the many people all around the world who are most affected by the repercussions of the global COVID-19 pandemic, especially marginalised communities that are historically oppressed.
AWID is closely monitoring the global COVID 19 situation and for now anticipates continuing with the Forum as planned.
If at any moment the situation demands something different, we will let you know right away.
The 14th AWID International Forum is scheduled to take place 11-14 January 2021 in the City of Taipei.
This in-person convening of feminists, women’s rights and social justice activists is however only one stop on our journey to Co-Create Feminist Realities. We invite you to join us over the next several months to discuss, analyse and share how we continue to build a just world for all.
Cindy Clark and Hakima Abbas, Co-Executive Directors of AWID state:
“Decisions around the AWID Forum are guided by several criteria, most importantly: participant safety and security. We shall continue to monitor the global pandemic, and by September 2020 will make a final decision on the viability of holding the 14th AWID International Forum in Taipei.”
The Forum feels even more relevant. We recognise this moment as one that exemplifies the failures of dominant systems, and simultaneously emphasises the need for feminist realities. There are more fair ways of organising and distributing resources, of governing and social protection. We need a world that puts people and planet first. This is the time to nurture and expand the full range of feminist economies, of organizing labour and of providing care. All people deserve the basics of life: clean air and water, meaningful labour, and the freedom to enjoy our lives.
