The Future Women Build

On 27 October, at 14:00, in Tbilisi Rooms Hotel, Garden Hall (14 Merab Kostava Street, Tbilisi), five inspirational speakers and role models will meet with young people and representatives of the public, private and civic sectors to showcase the role of rural women in the economy, entrepreneurship, climate action and governance.

Their speeches will focus on personal experiences in achieving success, the challenges and obstacles they had to face, and the ways to empower rural women to build a better future for themselves, their communities and their country.

A motivational forum “The Future Women Build” echoes the theme of this year’s Rural Women’s Day, which called on rural women around the world to claim their right to sustainable development.

The event is organized by UNDP in partnership with the European Union, Sweden and Switzerland.
