Dates of existence



The "Women and Sustainable Development: Canadian Perspectives" conference was initially proposed in 1992 and was held at UBC in May 1994. A Steering Committee of grass-roots activists planned it, researchers, public policy practitioners, and leaders of non-governmental organizations from the feminist, environment, development, and peace communities. It was led and chaired by Ann Dale, then Senior Associate at SDRI. The conference produced over 100 policy recommendations leading to the 1995 UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing.
