IFHE to prepare statement to the 60th Session of the Commission for Social Development (CSocD60) 2022

For over 70 years, IFHE has held consultative status with the United Nations. We use our active involvement to highlight the importance of knowledge on the responsible use of resources at household and consumer level.

We were pleased to learn of CSoCD60’s priority theme for 2022: Inclusive and resilient recovery from COVID-19 for sustainable livelihoods, well-being and dignity for all. The topic strongly resonates with home economics concerns and our commitment to sustainable development. “Building Resilient Homes and Families” has already been made theme for IFHE’s World Home Economics Day on 21 March 2022.

Call for experts

IFHE is planning to submit a statement to CSoCD60 and send representatives to the session in February 2022 in New York. We are looking for experts interested in helping draft a statement for this session:

Home economics & consumer science education are fundamental for resilience in households and communities.  

To express your interest, please send the following information:

  1. Your thematic contribution to the statement (100-200 words)
  2. Description of your academic background, current position and professional focus

IFHE looks forward to receiving your expression of interest by September 30, 2021 to Annette.ptassek@ifhe.org (IFHE membership required). Please understand that due to the volume of requests we will only answer emails that meet the above-mentioned formal requirements.
