The SDG Media Zone, reporting from the sixth ECOSOC Youth Forum on January 30th and January 31st at the United Nations, partners with social impact lifestyle brand Wren & Roch to educate and raise awareness of rape, domestic violence and sexual abuse.
Since 2012, the annual Youth Forum of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), has become a platform where young people can contribute to policy discussions at the United Nations through their collective ideas, solutions and innovations. The Forum allows representatives of youth-led and youth-focused organizations and networks, youth advocates and others to dialogue with Member States, and to explore ways and means of promoting youth development and engagement.
The mission of Wren & Roch handbags is to empower survivors of rape, domestic violence and sexual abuse. At the intersection of high fashion and giving back, each Wren & Roch handbag, proudly made in New York City, financially benefits selected Allies while positively impacting lives by raising awareness, eliminating stigmas, and educating for the prevention of abuse. Inspired by courageous and resilient women and girls, the brand’s meticulous attention to detail and versatile designs unite a rich combination of sultry and chic, with a rebellious edge.
The SDG Media Zone, powered by the Office of the United Nations Envoy on Youth, United Nations Foundation and PVBLIC Foundation, will host interactive 30-minute dialogues followed by a Q&A. Participants will include Ministers, including Ministers of youth, high-level representatives of national youth institutions, UN Youth Advocates such as National Youth Councils or Institutes, representatives from the Permanent Missions of Member States to the UN in New York, youth delegates, representatives from the United Nations Major Group for Children and Youth, youth representatives from CSOs or youth-led/youth-organizations and movements as well as representatives of regional and other multilateral organizations. The presence of the ECOSOC President, the Secretary-General, the Secretary General’s Envoy on Youth and the President of the General Assembly is expected.
Additional partners at the SDG Media Zone include Every Women Every Child and FP Comms.
