This International Conference is organized by The Destree Institute with the patronage of the UNESCO.

The conference is in full preparation and the deadline approaches: so far they have 243 registered participants at the international conference, 1.020 members of the Think Tank, 2.886 global members and 9.461 contacts.

This process is developing since 2007 with the several steps including 
 formulation of the Millennia2015 7 macro issues : :

Macro Issue-1. How to make women and girls more autonomous, through access to education, training and resources, while guaranteeing the conditions for genuine social and political success, to value their skills in the framework of a shared leadership between women and men?


MI-2. How to change mentalities to put an end to gender discrimination and change the traditions, in order to eradicate all forms of violence against women and girls, while specifically mobilizing men and boys?


MI-3. How to restore women's self-confidence and esteem, raise their awareness about their potential, their abilities and their vital role as managers of life, actors of development, mediators for peace and architects of futures?


MI-4. How to train, enhance and fund health care providers, particularly women, to offer appropriate medical care to women and children, in real time and in their own language, while using scientific resources and adequate technologies for remote health consultation as well as in health structures?


MI-5. How to conceive and carry out innovative societal transformations in order to achieve equality between women and men, indispensable for common progress and human harmony?


MI-6. How to combine equitably the added value of women in economic, scientific and political decision-making, and political scientists in order to found an inclusive multicultural society more balanced and responsible for the future?


MI-7. How to structure and effectively relay the strategies of the Millennia2015 communities to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and implement sustainable partnerships?
