Who Runs the World? Educated and Healthy Young Girls

Health Inspiration Stage, Palais II
10:00AM - 10:45AM

"The Future is Female.” According to research, if women participated in the global economy identically to men, there would be a 26% uplift in annual global gross GDP over the next 10 years. The global community knows that educated and healthy girls stay in school longer, marry later, delay childbearing, have healthier children, develop life skills, and earn higher incomes. They can also help lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

In this session, we explore the role of creativity and the collaborative global efforts that are being made in both private and public sectors to support young girls and women to develop futures that move their communities and the world forward.
