INITIATIVE #NoWomenNoPhoto TO PUT GIRLS AND WOMEN AT THE FOREFRONT OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

 

 

This initiative promotes the visibility of women in all the images we publish, highlighting the role that girls and women have at the forefront of sustainable development. We encourage sharing images that show the reality of the world that we want to build, showing children, men and women living together as equals. We must remember that girls and women represent more than half the population of the planet, and that currently men occupy most of the front pages of web pages or the media, a trend that we want to contribute to changing.
