Born in 1994? SheDecides has a great opportunity for you!

January 9, 2019

The SheDecides movement is looking for 25 exceptional 25-year-olds from 25 different countries around the world who are taking action to create a world where SheDecides. 

On 2 March 2019, the SheDecides Movement celebrates its third anniversary with the 2nd global SheDecides Day. And 2019 also marks 25 years since the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) was held in Cairo in 1994. ICPD changed global policy and made big changes to promote reproductive rights. SheDecides will be telling the world about the great changes that have happened, and the journey left to travel, through the eyes of the ’25×25′.

Throughout 2019, there will be on-line and off-line opportunities to foreground stories about the inspiring work that these 25 do. Their involvement will commence with their attendance at the SheDecides Day flagship event in Nepal on 2 March, and finish with their attendance at the Nairobi Summit organised by UNFPA in November.

Please help find these 25 young leaders from 25 different countries around the world, all 25 years old in 2019 (born in 1994), who are taking action to create that world where SheDecides.
