WeWorld INDEX 2015, a new report on the status of children, adolescents and women throughout the world, will be presented at the Farnesina at 10.30 on Tuesday 23 June 2015. The initiative is promoted by WeWorld Onlus with the patronage of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MFAIC).
Participants will include the Deputy Speaker of the Senate, Valeria Fedeli; the National Guarantor for Children and Adolescents, Vincenzo Spadafora; the Director General for Development Cooperation at the MFAIC, Giampaolo Cantini; and representatives of UN Women Italia and World Food Programme Italia.
WeWorld INDEX 2015 will focus on the well-being of children, adolescents and women, starting from the assumption that progress in a society should also be measured by analysing the living conditions of those who are most vulnerable and most at risk of social exclusion. In the WeWorld Index, the term “social inclusion” stands for a multi-dimensional concept that does not regard just the economic sphere but all dimensions of society.
2015 sees the first edition of the index, which focuses on the strong link between children’s rights and gender equality, which are priority issues for Italian Development Cooperation.
The innovative nature of the report lies in considering the interdependency between women and children and jointly assessing certain of their living conditions with specific indicators that concern both categories.
