Project Title: Third UN International Women and Girls in Science Day 2018
Activity: Financing for Sciences (FfSci) for Women and Girls Symposium 2018
Theme: “Equality and Parity in Science for Peace and Development”
Building on our past project under ITU that is, the International Girls in ICT Day celebrations in Uganda that CPAUG in collaboration & support from the GoU –MoICT/NG, WOUGNET and NITA-U launched in April 2012 in Kampala, we are looking at this as a milestone in promoting #UGWomenAndGirlsinScience campaign in 2018 in tandem with the NDPII, VISION2040 & the UN Agenda 2030 and the SDGs enshrined therein (May 2018-Feb 2019) with series of educational outreaches around the country targeting the girl child (primary & secondary schools, tertiary institutions & universities). Campaign launch April & symposium May 2018.
The purpose of this Forum is to harness the strategies, expertise and resources across the broadest
spectrum of policy-makers, professionals, civil society and the private sector to move equality and parity in science for sustainable development into the mainstream discourse. It is anticipated that this will spark sustained public demand for lasting political action in support of an ambitious outcome from the 2030 Development Agenda process and other declarations and Outcome Documents of other UN fora.
