Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the UN: e-seminar on Exploring the Gender Digital Divides
The year 2020 marks a special anniversary for the United Nations: 75 years from the signing of the UN Charter in San Francisco. To celebrate this anniversary, the United Nations University in Macau will be hosting a UN Day Open House. This event is aimed at local students and educators and most of the planned activities will take place offline (in the stunning UNU Macau's building illustrated above).
The UN Day Open House is organized in celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations. The year 2020 reminds us that we only have 10 years left to collectively accelerate sustainable solutions to all the world’ s biggest challenges. UNU Macau joins the Decade of Action to deliver on that ambition and have been targeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through our various ICT for Development projects. For the first time, we will be opening our heritage building, Casa Silva Mendes, to the Macau public for an afternoon of interactive activities and workshops on the Sustainable Development Goals.
On the day, the event participants will be provided with an opportunity to learn about the different areas of ICT for development resaerch from the top UNU's expertes in the field (see the agenda below).
As I'm still unable to travel to Macau due to the COVID19 restrictions, I will be participating in the event online. On the day, I will be delivering a 30 minutes interactive seminar on the topic of gender digital inclusion (which is also the key area of my research at the UNU Macau).
Really looking forward to learning from the event participants on the day and celebrating the UN's anniversary.
