The global inequality crisis is reaching new extremes. It is undermining efforts to end poverty, discrimination and marginalization, advance women’s rights, defend the environment, protect human rights and democracy, prevent conflict, and promote fair and dignified employment.
Growing inequality affects people across the globe – harming our societies and our planet.
We invite you to come and hear four different perspectives on global inequality – why it is a problem, and how people around the world are building their collective power to fight back and build a world of greater equality – where all people’s rights are respected and fulfilled, a world of shared prosperity, opportunity and dignity, living within the planet’s boundaries.
Climate perspective: Sebastian Bock, Greenpeace International
Feminist perspective: Mildred Ngesa Femnet Secretariat: The African Women’s Community and Development Network.
Labour union perspective: (TBC)
Socioeconomic perspective: Lidy Nacpil, Asian Peoples Movement on Debt and Development
Host: Tim Whyte, General Secretary ActionAid Denmark /Mellemfolkeligt Samvirke
All the panel guests are members of the global Fight Inequality Alliance. The Fight Inequality Alliance is a new and growing group of leading international and national non-profit organizations, human rights cam-paigners, women’s rights groups, environmental groups, faith-based organizations, trade unions, social movements and other civil society organizations that have come together to fight the growing crisis of inequality.
