Young NCWVic is group of young members of National Council of Women of Victoria. Our 2015 event will be held on August 10 and will celebrate 2015 being the 20th anniversary of the 4th World Conference of Women held in Beijing, China. (See beijing20.unwomen.org/ )
We have organized this event so that participating students will have the opportunity to meet each other and our panel of eminent women who have held public office to talk about the Beijing + 20 theme ‘She’s 20’. Are the objectives set out under the Beijing Platform for Action still relevant?
Students are invited to make brief 3 minute presentations on the theme of the day in the Legislative Council Chamber, to our invited audience of students, community members and our panel of former Members of Parliament.
We hope some of your students will be able to attend on August 10, 2015 from 9am to 12pm. This event is being run by a group of younger women who are recent graduates from the Melbourne universities. Student from the participating schools and their teachers are encouraged to send some information about contributions to the event via its wordpress bloghttps://youngncwvic.wordpress.com/
