Dear colleagues, dear partners,
‘We are making a new commitment with Sustainable Development Goal 5. Commitments are good. Action is better. Let us take action!’ These were the words with which German Chancellor Angela Merkel ended her speech at the Global Leaders’ Meeting on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment, held as part of the UN General Assembly in New York on 27 September.
Never before has the true achievement of equal opportunities for women and men come so high on the political agenda. That applies in equal measure to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development, and the G7 Agenda. We, and you in particular, are doing excellent work in this field – work we want to learn from and to which we want to lend a face with our contribution to realising the global agendas. Thus – let’s utilize this year’s Gender Week and Gender Competition to share and make visible what we have to offer.
To fill this website with life please

With best regards
Dr. Angela Langenkamp
