The European Week of Action for Girls (EWAG) is organised by a coalition of 8 civil society organisations, with the goal of ensuring girls’ voices and aspirations are heard by the EU institutions, and that girls’ rights are at the core of the EU’s external action. As a coalition, we are co-creating a space with and for young people to make sure their voices are heard by the European Union (EU) institutions in Brussels.
Organised during the week of the International Day of the Girl (11 October), the 2023 and 2024 editions of EWAG are coinciding with the next European Parliamentary elections. The theme for the next 2 years is EU for Girls, holding EU institutions and leaders accountable to do better on girls’ rights. Around 20 young Advocates from the European Union and EU partner countries will be in Brussels for a weeklong series of events to campaign for a European Union that does better for girls’ rights.
