Canon Europe to showcase creative education for women empowerment
| 01 June, 2018
Canon Europe has been selected by the European Commission to showcase its sustainability initiatives at this year’s European Development Days that will take place in Brussels on 5-6 June.
This year’s European Development Days theme will be ‘gender equality and women empowerment’ and Canon will be showcasing how it is utilising the power of imagery to support livelihoods, give young people a visual voice on implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and drive gender equality.
Stuart Poore, Director of Sustainability at Canon Europe said, “Imagery is incredibly powerful. It allows you to connect with an audience and bring people into your world. We are thrilled to be exhibiting at the European Development Days and will be using this as an opportunity to show the change we’re empowering others to make: from our Young People Programme, which is helping the next generation raise their voices on subjects that matter, to Miraisha, which is supporting local people up-skill for careers in the imaging sector.”
