First National Conference on the European Charter for Equality

The German Section of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (RGRE), RGRE deutsche Sektion, organises together with the City of Frankfurt am Main, the first national conference on the implementation of the European Charter for Equality.


The conference will take place on the 26th-27th of November 2013 in the City of Frankfurt am Main.


In Germany there are 35 signatories of the European Charter for Equality, some of which have already adopted action plans for Equality and are in the phase of implementation, and some that are still in the process of elaborating action plans.


The conference aims to provide an opportunity for German signatories to exchange experiences and knowledge, particularly on different ways of developing local action plans.

In addition to this, the conference will include a political discussion on the topic of gender equality and the role of municipalities.


The objective of the conference is to develop common strategies on how to anchor gender equality in municipal policies in order to successfully implement the European Charter for Equality.
