PRINCIPLE 4: INCLUSION AND GENDER EQUALITY

TCWNN IS INCLUSIVE, DIVERSE AND PROMOTES GENDER EQUALITY.

1. TCWNN is an inclusive city where no person, social group, sex, age group, race, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, creed or faith is excluded from the social, economic, cultural, and physical goods delivered by just, productive, sustainable, and well-planned cities. Human rights and equity are the forefront of its policies.

2. TCWNN eliminates all forms of segregation, discrimination and exclusion. It creates collaborative spaces that are socially inclusive, driven by democratic and participatory decision-making, and fosters shared values and a shared vision for a common good urban future.

3. TCWNN is a diverse city through actively promoting the value of the lives and potential of all the city’s diverse inhabitants–children, the poor, people with disabilities, older persons, and other disadvantaged groups, including migrants and refugees and all other human diversity.

4. TCWNN promotes gender equality and gender equity. TCWNN recognizes and supports women as key actors and partners in planning and designing, and adopts measures that enhance female participation and roles in decision making. Women are recognized as active change agents in sustainable urban development.

5. TCWNN promotes the economic empowerment of women and the opportunities to fulfil female professional aspirations.

6. TCWNN strengthens the “right to the city for all”. This entails the right to a dignified and secure existence with access to safe and affordable housing, public goods, services and a voice in decision-making for all.

7. TCWNN elaborates policies that are based on equity principles, constantly adjusting to reach optimal equilibrium. In the City We Need resources are distributed equitably and opportunities are available to all.

PRIORITY ACTIONS

1. Stimulate educational and cultural activities to foster social cohesion, tolerance, based on cultural diversity and human rights.

3. Provide emergency housing for women to tackle violence (domestic, on the working place, symbolic, etc).

4. Guarantee the means and mechanisms that enable everyone, without any kind of discrimination, to participate in the local decision-making, through processes such as community consultations, community contracting and participatory and gender-responsive decision-making and budgeting.

5. Encourage faith-based organizations co-committed to the common good and TCWNN to maximize their influence and impact to implement TCWNN.
