This report describes all the advocacy activities performed by MMM teams at the European Institutions, the United Nations and UNESCO during 2015, as well as activities performed at the level of "National MMM".
MMM’s mission is to promote the importance of the role mothers play in the economic, social and cultural development of their society. Despite the fact that they face serious difficulties, MMM is convinced that mothers can play an active part in resolving many problems when they are considered as stakeholders when they are supported, informed and motivated to act.
2015 was a year when we planned how we might better implement this mission. Three main thrusts became clear: listen to mothers (federate), give mothers a voice (communicate), strengthen the teams (motivate). We are targeting these three main goals.
In 2017, MMM will be celebrating 70 years of working for mothers! With that in mind, we plan to build on the work launched in 2015, so that by the end of 2016 we will be well on the way to achieving the goals set out above – and ready to make 2017 a new beginning.
I give my heartfelt thanks to all those of you who give their skills and time to MMM. Thank you to those who support us. And special thanks to the graphic artist, Françoise Ernst, who has set out many MMM publications during this year, including this Activity Report.
