The Weaving House believes Gender Equality is a precondition for peace, for the eradication of poverty, for sustainable & equitable development and for the protection of our environment. That Sustainable Development Goal 5 #SDG5 ~ Gender Equality, is integral for the success of all 17 #SDGs
~ That Gender Equality is keystone ~
The Weaving House website is on hiatus until the lead up to our 2019 convention
~ which is being held in Wānaka on the 12-13th April 2019 ~
Her Voice ~ a series of public lectures with New Zealand Women leaders and thinkers discussing the varied issues we have at major crossroads.
The focus is on Gender Equality and Human Rights issues, interwoven with topics and areas of life these women specialise.
The speakers come from a range of expertise with backgrounds and knowledge in politics, our environment, law, urban design, human rights, reproductive rights, economics, media, sporting, family and sexual violence, business and social development.
Each of our Weaving House 2019 speakers encompass women who nurture, hold and fortify more than one role in our communities. They are brave ~ they are a learned force.
Speakers are bringing their experiences, knowledge and critical thinking for todays challenges to help move us forward with haste ~ They will be describing essential ideas to outline where we need to be and how to get there ~ why we need to rapidly transform our way of viewing the world and how to support those efforts.
Speakers will be presenting those ‘dangerous ideas’ to provide simple and clear steps towards a collective future as a peaceful, equitable, sustainable nation and global community.
Our programme for ‘Her Voice’ 2019 will be available here from February the 25th & tickets will be available through EventFinder
