On December 3rd – 4th, Connecting Nurses participated in the international conference Millennia2015 welcoming about 300 participants, and, organized under the high patronage of the UNESCO.
Millenia2015’s mission covers one of the eight Millennium development goals, defined by the United Nations in 2000, which is “promoting gender equality”.
“Women’s empowerment benefits to the entire humanity” (Marie-Anne Delahaut, director of research The Destree Institute, and, head and founder of Millennia2015)
This is the reason why Millennia2015, with its 1500 members worldwide, is acting for women’s empowerment in the global political, economic and social challenges, in complementarity with men.
In order to promote gender equality, Millennia2015 launched, in 2007, an international foresight research process.
The Millennia partnership with Connecting Nurses
In 2010, Dr. Véronique Thouvenot, head of Women and eHealth, launched the WeHealth program because connected medical knowledge benefits to all, through digital solidarity.
Millennia2015 and WeHealth consider Connecting Nurses, www.connecting-nurses.com, as a great opportunity to create an observatory of e-health & telemedicine in nursing.
This partnership aims at modeling e-health Care Challenge, www.care-challenge.com, initiatives in order to be able to duplicate them in different part of the world.
During the Millenia2015 conferences, Connecting Nurses had the opportunity to showcase the project through a booth displayed during the two days at the UNESCO headquarters, and together with an oral communication in plenary session on December 3rd.
And watch also Mireia Artola and Maria Garro’s video, from Barcelona, with her project “Proper reading can make life better”.
This is one of the 10 winning projects of Care Challenge that has allowed nurses to showcase their innovation worldwide with the Limelight award!
