GEAR Campaign Transitional Toolkit for Civil Society Organizations

The GEAR Campaign toolkit aims to mobilize and organize civil society in an effort to strengthen participation in UN Women. With the establishment of UN Women, the GEAR Campaign asks that civil society proactively engages in building a new UN body for gender equality and women’s empowerment. The toolkit includes the following: call to action to civil society, a GEAR timeline, questions to keep in mind, some tips on how to get organized, tools to shape the UN women’s agenda, first 100 days of UN women, ongoing & long term suggestions for UN women, GEAR media & press, and resources for contacting local UN offices and UN agency information.
