Are you an Aboriginal female between the ages of 18-20 that is passionate, forward thinking, and solution oriented ? Then the Girls 20 Summit is looking for you!
Travel to Russia in 2013 to meet other young delegates from each G20 country, plus a representative from the European Union and the African Union.You will debate, discuss and design innovative ideas necessary to empower girls and women globally and present these to G20 Leaders. It’s an opportunity to engage and influence.
Our vision is for a world in which girls and women are empowered and able to participate fully in the economic growth, political stability and social innovations of their countries. Increasing access to quality education, employment, and other resources contributes to growth, broad-based sustainable economic development and long-term prosperity. It is widely recognized that girls and women bring critical perspectives and priorities, as well as a diversity of skills and competencies, which makes policy and economic decision-making more responsive to the needs and priorities of all.
Just think of the opportunities that are available to be able to help others understand Aboriginal issues and to be a part of the solution in this highly politicized current social landscape.
And because there mandate is to be accessible to all, the Summit assists in costs for all delegates selected to attend, including flights and accommodations.
What have you got to lose? There is no time to waste. The deadline is December 20th and the application is here. Please note that you will need a valid passport.
