On 3-4 November the annual EuroNGOs conference will take place in Oslo, Norway and will be hosted by Sex og Politikk, The Norwegian Association for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. As the first major civil society-led convening event following the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda, the EuroNGOs International Conference will contribute to the discussion and identify ways in which sexual and reproductive health and rights advocates can work together within the new agenda, while also pushing for the expansion of the components of the SRHR envelope that have been left aside.
Every year for over a decade, EuroNGOs has held annual conferences hosted by one of its member organizations in different European countries. These gatherings are known for being leading fora bringing together bright minds and leaders working on sexual and reproductive health and rights to discuss a wide range of idea-focused subjects, and provoke conversations that matter.
The conference is open to EuroNGOs members and partners, activists, policy makers and like-minded stakeholders from across the world working on sexual and reproductive health and rights. External experts and leading thinkers from outside the SRHR community have been invited to provide additional stimuli and new perspectives.
On 2nd November, EuroNGOs will co-host a one day strategy workshop for members and partners who are attending the conference in Oslo. The aim of the workshop is to develop joint understanding and nurture collective strategic thinking around selected issues of relevance for sexual and reproductive health and rights advocates working at the European and international levels. This one day workshop is titled "Strategising and moving forward beyond 2015" and is designed around three consecutive sessions focusing on issues which are high on the agenda for sexual and reproductive health and rights advocates in Europe and beyond, including: Sexual rights in the European political landscape; Climate change and Financing for Development.
