On March 16th, 2022 the German UN Mission had the honor to welcome remarkable women to an event in the German House in New York on the occasion of the ongoing meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women in New York.
This discussion took place in the framework of the German G7 Presidency. Speakers from different origins, backgrounds and agreed all contributed to one theme: Fostering a Green and Just Transformation. They shared their experience, achievements and concerns on how to drive forward women’s empowerment and leadership in the context of the climate crisis.
Guests were welcomed by the Parliamentary Secretary of State Elkin Deligöz (BMFSFJ) as well as Ms Juliane Rosin, National Council of German Women’s Organisations.
We were also proud to welcome Helena Dalli, EU Commissioner for Equality, as key note Speaker as well as Anita Bhatia, Deputy Executive Director of UN Women, Alexandria Villasenor, Climate Justice Activist, as panelists, amongst others.
