African Women's Forum Brussels 2019
November 14 to 16, 2019 Brussels (Belgium) at Hotel Le Plaza
The debates, leading to open and productive discussions, focused on Priority to Women and Girls’ Education, Access to Employment and societal Responsibilities, Rural Women Empowerment and the promotion of Women’s Entrepreneurship. Releasing finances for the smallholding farmers is an issue that touches me enormously.
AAVF defended and contributed to these discussions in Brussels.
“Promoting Rural Women in Africa: implementing fair and sustainable agriculture” was hosted in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). A space was provided to AAVF to introduce agriculture & technology (thus Vertical Farming).
AFRICAN WOMEN EMBODY UNIVERSAL VALUES
A MODEL FOR THEIR YOUTH BUT ALSO THE WHOLE WORLD
The Crans Montana - African Women's Forum's aim is to highlight African Women’s experiences, which can be described as life-enhancing and contribute to the global development and integration process.
This approach requires the implementation of a comprehensive educational system for girls and effective support for women in order to promote their access to employment. It is also essential to encourage female entrepreneurship within the framework of good governance that enables the development of women's transversal role in society.
The AAVF participated by giving an introduction on Vertical Farming at the below session:
