What? Changes in the existing gender relations can only be achieved if women and men work together. Examples from Rwanda, Benin, Afghanistan, Colombia and Brazil show how men and boys can become agents of change for a better and just future. Focusing on aspects such as strengthening the rule of law, peace building by the promotion of cooperation between government and civil society and strengthening the rights-based approach within civil society organizations, innovative approaches of involving men and boys in the work for gender equality will be presented and discussed. The keynote speaker is Dr. Hans-Joachim Preuss (member of the executive board). The evening will close with a reception offering ample opportunity for exchange and networking – and live music!
