WIP Summit 2015
“New Leadership for Global Challenges” was the theme of the WIP Summit 2015, co-hosted by the African Union and co-financed by the European Commission. It focused on new leadership for change; on the need for variety of different leaders, men and women, that are willing to work together, and share insights and innovations on how best to deal with the global challenges of today and navigate the future. Special attention was given to the definition and implementation of international commitments that define our near future (post-2015 Development Agenda) within areas such as education, health, entrepreneurship and regional co-operation. The WIP Summit 2015 also celebrated the 20th anniversary of the blueprint for advancing women’s rights, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and mobilised political will for the next steps.
