Representatives from UN agencies, ministers and women’s rights activists from several countries take part in a meeting in Latin America to assess the fulfilment of the Millennium Development Goal on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Over two days, a review will not only be made of the progress achieved, but also of the challenges raised and forecasts with regard to bringing the goal of women’s empowerment to fruition, a target set 13 years ago, when the international community agreed to accomplish the eight Millennium Development Goals aimed at reducing poverty and social exclusion by 2015.

It is with sorrow that Metropolis mourns the passing of Mr. Nelson Mandela, Former President of the South African Republic.
Last July, Metropolis celebrated its Annual Meeting in South Africa for the first time. The City of Joburg, active member of Metropolis, hosted the event with great success and offered delegates the possibility to join the Mandela Day Celebration on July, 18 2013; for all of us was an unforgettable experience.
Thank you South Africa!
