She is my best advocate for girls education, the Prime Minister of #Norway Erna Solberg. We met and I congratulated her on her commitment since education is key for ending child marriage and outcomes in maternal health. World YWCA #Globalgoals
Women and girls make up more than half the world’s population and they are often more deeply impacted than men and boys by poverty, climate change, lack of healthcare, and global economic crises. With the new 2030 roadmap and global goals for sustainable development set to be approved by UN Member States on 25 September, [@UN Women] takes a look at how women are affected by each of the 17 global goals, as well as how women and girls will be key to achieving each of them. http://j.mp/womenandglobalgoals #globalgoals #Planet5050
The Zero Hunger Challenge aims to ensure that every man, woman and child enjoy their Right to Adequate Food and that food systems everywhere are sustainable and resilient. Youth must lead the way.

Tomorrow the United Nations summit for the adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda will open and be held from 25 to 27 September 2015, in New York.
