Copenhagen, Denmark

Join our workshop in Copenhagen aiming at promoting gender equality and fostering inclusive environments for women's participation in renewable energy, energy efficiency, resilient communities, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Energy, Arts, and Mathematics) fields!

The workshop, organised as part of the UIA Congress, is designed to gather insights and develop actionable policy recommendations that drive meaningful change, empowering diversity and providing equal opportunities for all individuals, regardless of gender.

It will address strategies and mechanisms that bridge the gender gap and encourage collaboration and mentorship among women across different levels of seniority. During the workshop, relevant cases will be presented by three leading and inspiring speakers, offering valuable insights and perspectives on urban feminism, energy management and public private partnerships.

Following the speaker sessions, we will facilitate two interactive sessions. The first session will focus on identifying and discussing the barriers that women face in various sectors, while the second session will explore potential solutions for increasing women's participation in STEAM fields. Finally, we will collectively distill our discussions into concrete recommendations targeting authorities and policymakers, with the ultimate goal of effecting significant change and enhancing gender readiness.

We highly value diversity, so we encourage individuals of all genders, colors, and ages to actively participate. Your lived experiences are invaluable contributions to our policy recommendations.

The workshop is free with entrance to the UIA Congress, but please register here.
