The theme and activities of the UNiTE Campaign in 2018 under the global banner Orange the World: #HearMeToo, will aim to mobilise all UNiTE networks, the UN system, government partners, civil society, schools and universities, private sector, sports associations and individuals to stand in solidarity with survivor advocates and women’s human rights defenders who are working to prevent and end violence against women and girls.
Under the theme Orange the World: #HearMeToo, the UNiTE partners are encouraged to host events with local, national, regional and global women’s movements, survivor advocates and women human rights defenders and create opportunities for dialogue between activists, policy makers and the public.
These events may take place through physical as well as through online platforms.
Creative mediums and the arts may be used to support storytelling and advocacy through the voices of the women and girls.
As in previous years, the colour orange will be a key theme unifying all activities, with buildings and landmarks lit and decorated in orange to bring global attention to the initiative.
