At PaRD’s General Assembly of Members (GAM) in September 2020, the Steering Group, Sub-Committees, Secretariat and work-stream co-leads reported to the PaRD members on activities and the plans for 2021.
For the first time, all of the four work-streams of the International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) have developed together a common podcast, discussing religious actors and COVID-19 at Geneva Peace Week 2020.
The PaRD Gender Equality Work-Stream launched a new series of critical dialogues at the PaRD Annual Forum 2020. The focus for the series is on ‘Visioning a Just World Post-COVID19: Religion, Sustainable Development and Gender Justice’.
During the United Nations General Assembly, PaRD Members UNEP, World Vision and Global One co-host a webinar on "COVID-19 Child Sensitive, Inclusive and Greener Recovery Strategies to Build Back Better". Start: 24 September, 8.00 - 9.30 AM EST.
This year's PaRD Annual Forum was different. The event has been held virtually with only few PaRD members physically gathering at Humboldt University in Berlin. But this didn't prevent high level speakers from joining the discussions!
As part of the PaRD Virtual Forum, the Gender Equality and Empowerment Workstream will host an interactive event on COVID-19, Religion, Sustainable Development and Gender Justice on Friday 4th September 2020 | Time: 14:00 – 15:30 CEST.
