Copenhagen Conference 2014

Beyond 2015 Copenhagen CSO Conference

UN City, Copenhagen, 13-14 November 2014

The Beyond 2015 Copenhagen CSO Conference was a key moment for global civil society to take stock of progress on the creation of the new Post-2015 framework and influencing the final stage of negotiations, raising the ambition and ensuring that governments are committed to an ambitious, transfromative agenda which tackles the key issues of our time; inequality, environmental sustainabilty, poverty eradication, human rights, peace and security and participation. 

The Beyond 2015 Copenhagen CSO Conference brought together 170 global civil society representatives from 46 countries with the objective of taking stock of the Post-2015 agenda and the global goals for sustainable development. The conference was an important opportunity to jointly discuss the outcome of the 69th session of the UNGA and the forthcoming UNSG Synthesis Report on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, and to engage in CSO strategizing for the crucial and final year of the Post-2015 negotiations. Addressing the social, economic and environmental aspects of inequality was a specific theme for the conference.
