Civil society perspectives on the Post-2015 agenda

The event will explore, in a dialogue among civil society representatives from the EU and other parts of the world, the emphasis that civil society is placing on accountability and policy coherence as essential elements for the Post-2015 agenda. It will also shed light on the need for a global shift to sustainable production and consumption and on the priority which should be given to equality, employment and decent work.

The panel interventions will be followed by a debate with the audience.

The event is open to all permanent missions and permanent observer missions, UN agencies, interested media and non-governmental organizations.
