Honour Bright Changemakers in the world

The Working Group Gender Equality and Disability of Civil20, one of the Engagement Groups of the G20, invites you to participate in our worldwide campaign to commemorate women’s empowerment and promote gender equality.



The campaign launched on March 8th, 2023, International Women’s Day, during an online launch event with renowned Indian and international speakers. The Grand Finale of this campaign will happen at the C20 India 2023 Summit to be held on July 30-31, 2023, in Jaipur. We hope to have collected one million nominations and will have a special display of lights during the Grand Finale.


The One Million Lights campaign is a powerful reminder of the impact we can have on others to create a brighter, more positive future for women all over the world. By recognising and acknowledging these bright changemakers, the campaign aims to create a ripple effect of inspiration and positivity to make a real difference in the world.

Nominate Light

One or more people (e.g. mother, father, teacher, friend, colleague), organisations (e.g. civil society organisations, non-government organisations, educational institutions), or initiatives (e.g. communities, projects). Tell us how your nominees have made a difference in your life or someone else’s in the area of gender equality and women’s empowerment. Your nominees will receive a note of gratitude to inform them that they have been a light in your life.

Each nomination will be represented as sparks of light on a digital global map, symbolising the spread of collective efforts and illuminating the way towards progress. Selected stories will be exhibited to the global community through the C19 platform.
