E-Discussion on Post-2015 Development Agenda
Imagine the world you want in 2050. What changes will be necessary to put global development on the
path to building a more just, equitable world? The United Nations system is working with governments
and civil society to build on the momentum generated by the MDGs, and to design an ambitious post-
2015 development agenda that delivers a sustainable future for all.
As part of this work, the Equator Initiative will facilitate an online e-discussion, co-hosted by UNDP
and UNEP, on the role of local empowerment and environmental sustainability in the post-2015
development agenda. This discussion will take place from May 13-26 2013. Its objective is to facilitate an open dialogue that brings together a multitude of voices to stimulate creative thinking, and begin to generate consensus around how best to reflect environmental sustainability in the post-2015 agenda.
This is is a unique opportunity to make sure that community-based action, innovation and empowerment are at the centre of the development agenda beyond 2015. Milano students and faculty are encouraged to lend their voices to the global conversation. Once open, you can post a response and participate in the discussion here.

What kind of world do you want?
With the 2015 deadline to meet the Millennium Development Goals rapidly approaching, the United Nations is gearing up to define the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals.
While the number of people living in extreme poverty has dropped drastically since 1990, and quantifiable progress has been made in improving access to drinking water, the world is facing an unprecedented set of challenges: inequality is rising around the globe, population growth is set to push our already-ailing food system to the breaking point, and unchecked climate change threatens to destroy the lives of millions and undo the progress that has been made thus far.
This is where you come in. The United Nations recently launched The World We Want initiative with the goal of providing a space for people from every corner of the globe to help build a collective vision of what we want our world to look like. The results of the survey will be used to help world leaders plan a post-2015 development agenda. Click here to make your voice heard.
