2017 - 17 Days Campaign Kit

Dear Friends and Partners,

We are happy to inform you that we have launched the third edition of our annual campaign for the Empowerment of Rural women leaders and their communities.   

Please remember that the Empowerment Kit and its Call to Action is central to the campaign "17 Days of activism 1-17 October". For this reason we stress that you familiarize yourself with the information contained in the Kit, including the list of 17 Campaign themes, as well as the main theme of the year, which is the Right to Peace.

WWSF continues to build its campaign around the relevant Sustainable Development Goals in the hope that your actions will contribute to reach t ambitious targets by 2030 – leaving no one behind.

In addition, we draw your attention to the wide array of suggested ideas for action presented in the Kit to support and assist you in developing your own activities and events at local, national or international levels. Please note that you remain completely free to focus your campaign on the theme(s) of your choice even if they are not included in the Kit.

For your information, WWSF will invite you before the end of the year to nominate candidates for our annual Prize for women’s creativity in rural life and will announce the 2017 prizewinners on 1 October and celebrated on 15 October – International Day of Rural Women.

We also thank you in advance for sending us a brief report, photos and videos, of your annual events, which we will include in our Campaign Impact Report.
