It is our pleasure to welcome you to the on-line consultation on the Tunis Forum for Gender Equality 2019. This consultation will take place from 1 – 28 February 2019. This consultation provides an opportunity for all those interested in gender equality to influence the agenda of the Tunis Forum for Gender Equality and contribute to the global debate for 2019 and 2020.
The Tunisia forum will be a follow up to the Stockholm Forum held in April 2018 The focus in Tunisia will be on reclaiming the gender equality agenda before Beijing +25. We will be looking for the key participation of women and men under 35 who can help frame priorities for the future.

As we prepare for key events in 2020, including both the 25th anniversary of the Beijing platform for action and the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, we want to ensure that a young voice looking to the future is predominant.
To take this discussion forward, we propose the following two questions:
