Be Part of the Post 2015 Youth Consultations

I am a product of the MDG generation. The MDGs have been a part of my ‘coming of age’. I therefore strongly believe that my generation need a seat at the discussion table if the post- MDG agenda is to be sustainable.

In 2015 a new framework for global development priorities will be introduced.

Young people will be the ones seeing the impact of this new framework and the ones who will be held accountable for its implementation. Young people need to be a part of this conversation!

Process towards a Post-2015 agenda

“In a rapidly changing international environment, we must also look ahead, beyond the deadline for the goals. And so, in response to your request in the outcome document, I intend to initiate a process that will result in a post-2015 framework for the development work of the United Nations.”  United Nations Ban Ki Moon

The process to identify a post 2015 framework for development was established by the United Nations. In 2012 a ‘high level panel’ was announced.In 2013 the high level panel will submit a report to the United Nationsdetailing recommendations for a new framework. Consultations with civil society are being run in parallel with this process, and this includes 50 UN country consultations and 9 thematic consultations. A web platform – worldwewant2015.org – will collect inputs from civil society on the 9 thematic consultations.

The Youth consultations for a post 2015 framework aim to influence this post 2015 process and input concrete recommendations for a post 2015 framework that takes the needs of young people into account.
