Envisioning 2035

Envisioning 2035 is an exciting process that has been launched in the lead-up to World Council in Thailand in 2015. It is designed to engage members, partners and friends in imagining the collective power and impact of 25 million women and girls united under the YWCA banner in over 120 countries towards realising this vision.

What is the link between Envisioning 2035 and the Strategic Framework 2016-2019?

For the next 20 years, the YWCA movement will develop five Strategic Frameworks that will serve as blueprints for implementation of vision 2035. These four year Strategic Frameworks will guide the movement towards achieving vision 2035. Individual YWCA Member Associations will incorporate the essential elements of the vision 2035 Goal, along with the Strategic Frameworks, into their own programmes and work. 

Common Concern now available to download electronically!

Every four years, YWCAs from over 120 countries meet to determine the strategic directions, policies and leadership of the global YWCA movement, which reaches more than 25 million women, young women and girls through its programmes and outreach into over 22,000 local communities.  

Submit a Call to Action

World Council 2015 “Call to Action” is a major statement of policy on a critical issue that has emerged since August 2014. A “Call to Action” is a long-term commitment that gives the international YWCA movement direction about how to address advocacy and policy priorities, requires implementation by the whole YWCA movement, and may have financial implications. “Calls to Action” should not repeat existing World YWCA Statements of Policy but rather build upon them.
