The twin events, International Development and Cooperation Meeting on Gender and Media, and the First General Assembly of the Global Alliance on Media and Gender (GAMAG) opened today in Geneva.

The main objective of the events is to initiate dialogue about an international development cooperation framework on gender and media. Real change starts with dialogue. Genuine dialogue leads to commitment, maybe not immediately but eventually.

Already an encouraging number of confirmations have been received from media partners, governments, UN agencies, funds and programmes, national and regional development organizations, private sector and other international development organizations, from over 50 countries.

In order to facilitate the information circulation and to present the current achieved outcomes to enhance gender equality in and through media, UNESCO and GAMAG have launched a website dedicated to the events: http://en.unesco.org/gamag.
