Benefiting from the patronage of the UNESCO, the international conference Millennia2015, “An action plan for women’s empowerment” is organized to present the results of the foresight exercise started in 2008.

Millennia2015 “Women actors of development for the global challenges” has been launched by The Destree Institute and its international partners in 2007. Its international community gathers more than two thousands experts, women and men, decided to strengthen and to promote the empowerment of women, the respect of human rights and of gender equality all over the world.

On the occasion of the 54th Commission on the Status of Women (Beijing+15) in March 2010 at the United Nations headquarters in New York, Millennia2015 has also launched an appeal for international digital solidarity in order to work together until 2015, with the aim of building sustainable futures in solidarity for all women in the entire world at the horizon 2025.


The Millennia2015 international conference will be interactive, working with foresight as a method and the information society as context in solidarity.
