Histoire

Une décennie d'expérience de campagne

En septembre 2003, une activiste éminente sur les affaires relatives aux femmes et aux enfants, Graçia Machel, a accueilli un groupe d’activistes de la société civile du sud à Maputo, au Mozambique. C’est ainsi que l’idée de l’action mondiale contre la pauvreté (GCAP) a été avancée pour la première fois. Son lancement intervient  en 2005 au Forum Social Mondial de Porto Allegre avec le symbole de la bande blanche « whiteband », GCAP a mobilisé des centaines de millions de personnes et a coorganisé la plus grande campagne de questions à caractère unique au monde dénommé « Stand Up », c’est-à-dire, Debout contre la pauvreté – certifiée par le record Mondial Guinness avec 173 millions personnes en 2009. GCAP a joué un rôle clé dans l’élaboration et la formulation de l’agenda 2030 et les Objectifs de Développement Durable (ODDs). Nous avons organisé des consultations communautaires et nationales dans 39 pays depuis 2013. En 2015, nous avons mobilisé 32 millions personnes pour lutter contre la pauvreté, l’Inégalité et le changement climatique. GCAP a insisté avec succès sur la centralité de la lutte contre les inégalités et la garantie de la participation active des personnes à l’agenda 2030. L’objectif ODD 10 sur les inégalités, en est un résultat. Le 25 septembre 2017, GCAP en collaboration avec la Campagne d’action del’ONU-SDG, a célébré la Journée Mondiale d’Action – Act4SDGs pour marquer l’anniversaire des ODDs. En 2018, un million de personnes ont participé à 1662 actions dans 143 pays.   https://youtu.be/aRUgs2Wpcqc
