The European Week of Action for Girls (EWAG) is a week-long programme of events and activities, based around the International Day of the Girl Child, on Tuesday 11th October.
The end goal of the International Day of the Girl Child is to bring the voices of girls and young women at the forefront of decision-making, a space for girls’ voices to be heard by the EU Institutions in Brussels. This year EWAG turns 10, and under the slogan #GirlsDecade, we decided to build upon this legacy for our theme “10 in 10: The world through the eyes of a girl”, in which we paint a picture of a future world where girls can feel safe and empowered to reach their full potential.
The 2022 edition
After being held fully online over the past two years, EWAG’s young advocates are ready to come to Brussels and meet again in person! Between 10-15 October a series of events, gatherings, and meetings will bring them together to make sure that their voices are heard by EU decision makers. Take a look at just some of the events we’ve got planned:
Art Exhibition: “10 in 10: The world through the eyes of a girl”
Breakfast Exchange: Czech Presidency of the council of the EU x young advocates
