Inés Sánchez de Madariaga, genderSTE Chair and Director of the UNESCO Chair on Gender Equality Policies in Science Technology and Innovation,  stressed the example of genderSTE  as a similar platform to those that  UN-Habitat  should create as a result of  Habitat III - the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development , taking place in Quito later this year.

The conference was organised by genderSTE in collaboration with UNESCO and the Technical University of Madrid. Engendering Habitat III placed gender at the heart of the urban sustainable development. Architects, city planners and experts from academia, international organisations and the private sector will discuss the factors, strategies and previous experiences that have supported gender equality in the context of sustainable cities.
