INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY, THE GREAT DEBATE.
A clarion call has gone out from the International women’s day organisers for the voice of the 25 and under ladies to be heard.
Amid the ongoing Global conversation about the Economy and projections about when- and in which markets- the World might emerge from financial crises, the collective voice of the 25 and under- age ladies groups is hard to hear.
It could have been silenced due to a sense of futility about challenging the so-called Establishment or it might be on-line constrained by such social media outlets as facebook and twitter.
Whatever the case, advertising and communications agency Euro RSCG Worldwide is taking measures to get the under 25’s to speak up on such issues as the environment, health and education at an event called “one young world” which was held in London from February 8th to the 10th.
Kate Robertson, UK group Chairman of Euro RSCG and David Jones conceived the idea of holding an annual Global summit for ladies under the age of 25.
“They live in an era where systemic risk is apparent” Robertson said in an interview with Reuters ahead of the event.
Former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Musician Bob Geldof were among the high profile celebrities who served as “councillors” to the delegates.
