Every four years, member associations of World YWCA gather together for the World Council meeting, the largest gathering of YWCAs from all around the world. It is a time for membership engagement, decision-making, setting priorities, reflections, and networking.

This year, the 29th World Council will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa, from November 17-22, 2019. Between 300 to 500 delegates, observers, guests, and other participants are expected to attend, with YWCA South Africa and World YWCA jointly hosting this gathering that is so pivotal for the life and future of the global YWCA movement.
