04:00 AM - 12:00 PM        28th regular session of the Human Rights Council (Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland, 2 - 27 March 2015)

08:45 AM - 11:00 AM        (GA Hall) The 39th Annual UNIS-UN International Conference. Theme: Sustainability: Balancing people, Planet, and Profit.
Opening remarks by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
This year's conference topic will be Sustainability: Balancing People, Planet and Profit. The Millennium Development Goals, which targeted extreme poverty, health, and education in developing countries are coming to an end in 2015. The newest set of targets, the Sustainable Development Goals, build upon their predecessors and provide the framework for further improvements. As countries gather at the United Nations to reevaluate the MDGs and agree upon the new SDGs, it is the perfect time to explore what a sustainable future looks like and what is currently being done to achieve it.
The 2015 UNIS-UN international student conference will examine sustainability in terms of its three interrelated components: the development of our society, the growth of the economies and the impact on the environment. We seek to explore topics such as climate justice, gender equality, and resilient cities, and to uncover how they are all key parts of fostering sustainable development on all levels. Through diverse speakers and open dialogue discussions we hope to engage young minds in the importance and possibilities of designing our sustainable and promising future.

09:00 AM - 12:00 PM        (ECOSOC) International Women's Day Forum: "The Empowerment Bridge: Building a Lifetime of Opportunity for Women and Girls"
Organized by the United Nations Office for Partnerships and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Corporate Citizenship Center.
This year's Forum, The Empowerment Bridge: Building a Lifetime of Opportunity for Women and Girls, will focus on the tools and tactics that help bridge the opportunity gap for women and girls around the world.
Expert-led discussions will delve into the critical underpinnings of economic empowerment, such as technology, STEM education, health care, and job and business skills training; they will also look at creating an ecosystem that supports women entrepreneurs, from encouraging girls to pursue their business dreams to ensuring that women-owned businesses can succeed and scale. Plenaries and breakout sessions will also explore the research and data that support expanding the roles that women and girls play in the global economy, effective frameworks for cross-sector partnerships with measureable results, the impact of storytelling on putting vital stepping stones into place, and specific interventions for women in various roles within the global value chain. Each of these discussions will touch on the often-catalytic role of the private sector, including in addressing the emerging Sustainable Development Goals.
