In March 2016 Ausma and Trude were approached by AIESEC, a student group at the University of Nottingham Ningbo, to participate in their student conference focused around UN Development goals. AIESEC is an international organisation for young people to explore and develop their leadership potential. At the conference, QHumanity discussed some of the main issues related to achieving UN Development goal of gender equality and engaged students to carry out community projects to address gender inequalities in their own communities. We delivered a keynote lecture for all 150 participants, followed by smaller seminars where students could shape their own community projects. The keynote discussed the main issues related to gender inequality focusing on unpacking what gender inequality means and how it matters relating it to UN’s development goal of gender inequality. This was followed by two seminars designed to engage students in hands on examples on how to engage with and address gender inequalities.
