UNESCO and the Hellenic National Commission for UNESCO co-organized a UNESCO Future Forum on the theme “Gender Equality: The Missing Link? Rethinking the Internationally agreed Development Goals beyond 2015” scheduled from 9 to 11 September in Athens, Greece. This high-level meeting took place a few days before Heads of States and Governments gather in New York for the High-level Meeting of the General Assembly of the United Nations to review the progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). In this global agenda, the international community committed itself to take specific time-bound action on such issues as gender equality, poverty, hunger, illiteracy and HIV/AIDS by 2015.
