16 days of Activism Against Gender Violence

Violence against women is a sad and shameful reality happening in all societies and across the globe. Although it is rooted in gender inequalities, it also exists because we, as a society and individuals, far too often let it continue unnoticed. 

The LAB4GE partners would like to emphasize that violence against women is a human rights violation, and it negatively affects women’s general well-being and prevents women from fully participating in society. It impacts their families, their community, and the country at large. So we should all work together for a world where gender-based violence is unacceptable, where perpetrators are held accountable and victims receive the support they deserve.

World Food Day, 16th October

Leave No One Behind: Better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life.

2022 finds us with an ongoing pandemic, conflict, a climate that won’t stop warming, rising prices and international tensions. This is affecting global food security.

We need to build a sustainable world where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious food. No one should be left behind.

Worldwide, more than 80 percent of the extreme poor live in rural areas and many rely on agriculture and natural resources for their living. They are usually the hardest hit by natural and man-made disasters and often marginalized due to their gender, ethnic origin, or status. It is a struggle for them to gain access to training, finance, innovation and technologies.

The Lab4GE partners recognize that Gender Equality builds a Sustainable World.

World Habitat Day, 3rd October

For a better Urban Future

In 2022, World Habitat Day (#WHD2022) under the theme “Mind the Gap. Leave No One and Place Behind” looks at the problem of growing inequality and challenges in cities and human settlements.

World Habitat Day 2022 seeks to draw attention to the growing inequalities and vulnerabilities that have been exacerbated by the triple ‘C’ crises — COVID-19, climate and conflict.

The Lab4GE partners recognize that Act local to go global is an effective committed for making our communities better around the world.

International Day of Peace – 21st September


Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

But achieving true peace entails much more than laying down arms.  It requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish. It involves creating a world in which people are treated equally, regardless of their ‘race’.

As conflicts continue to erupt across the globe, causing people to flee, we have seen race-based discrimination at borders. As COVID-19 keeps attacking our communities, we have seen how certain racial groups have been hit much harder than others. As economies suffer, we have seen hate speech and violence directed at racial minorities.

The Lab4GE partners recognize that we all have a role to play in fostering peace. And tackling racism is a crucial way to contribute.

International Day of Democracy, 15th September


The values of freedom, respect for human rights and the principle of holding periodic and genuine elections by universal suffrage are essential elements of democracy.  In turn, democracy provides the natural environment for the protection and effective realization of human rights. These values are embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and further developed in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which enshrines a host of political rights and civil liberties underpinning meaningful democracies.

The Lab4GE partners are committed for achieving the Goal 16 of UN Agenda 2030 – “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions” – directly connected with this World Day.
