Future plans? How do you like the idea of a 200-women
European women's meeting somewhere in 1997 organised in theme
working groups and to reflect on national commitments to the WCW
Platform for Action? And what do you think of organising our
next Young Women's Conference in June in Turkey? And documented
three-month bi-lateral reciprocal exchanges for young women
The Young Women and Democracy Programme is funded for a one-year
period from 1 June 1995, by a grant from the European Union
(PHARE/TACIS) for the above activities indicated in the Timetable.
In the coming period, we will like to seek supplementary funding
for additional organising support for the Pilot speakers' tours, a
more developed media and press skills training programme (similar
to the existing email training programme), travel costs for more
far-away participants to the regional seminars and an expanded
newsletter. We will also begin to seek funding for the 1996/97
Conferences and Regional Meetings
