Lisbon, 10-11 October 2018
On the occasion of the 4th edition of the Women4Mediterranean High Level Conference on women’s socio-economic empowerment - which took place in Lisbon on October 10 and 11 - COPEAM was media partner of the Union for the Mediterranean, ensuring the presence of journalists of its network from both the north and the south of the Mediterranean, for the event coverage.
Around the theme "Women build inclusive societies in the Mediterranean", this edition brought together more than 300 participants from more than 30 countries, including prominent personalities active in the field of gender equality in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
Participants discussed the role of men, the private sector and youth in addressing stereotypes and social barriers related to gender. They explored ways to combat violence against women and questioned the role of women in science, technology and innovation.
COPEAM intervened in the session "The role of the private sector and media", illustrating the training and production initiatives that it conducts among its associated public radios and televisions to contrast gender clichés and promote an image of women as citizens having an active role in the economic, political and cultural development of the Mediterranean societies.
