Draft 3.0 of the Beyond2015 VISION for a Post-2015 framework is now available! Please rate the draft below and send your feedback by using the form below!!!

Thanks to all for sending your comments on the previous drafts (see draft 1.0 and draft 2.0). A workshop took place in Nairobi, Kenya, on 11-12 June 2013 where comments gathered online and through national deliberations were taken into consideration and new drafts were produced. See here and below draft 3.0: 

Vision statement (v.3.0)

Our vision is:

An equitable and sustainable world where every person is safe, resilient, lives well, and enjoys their human rights, and where political and economic systems deliver well-being for all people within the limits of our planet’s resources.

Consequently, it is a world where:

  • Human rights are realised: Where states, organisations and actors at all levels fulfil their responsibilities within human rights laws and frameworks so that all individuals can enjoy their human rights with dignity and equity, including the right to participate in shaping their individual and collective future.

  • Poverty has been eradicated: Where the common good and well-being of all takes precedence over the interests of a tiny elite, and where all people have access to the resources they need for their personal and social development, supported by state and international policies and systems.

  • The environment is safeguarded: Where the natural world is protected and planetary boundaries respected by all through sustainable natural resource management.

  • There is social justice: Where there is equality of opportunity and equity in outcomes for all individuals across all countries, and where systems and structures ensure that every country and each individual has equal opportunities to fulfil their own potential within available planetary resources.

  • Peace, safety and security are a reality for all: Where institutions and systems resolve conflict effectively; advance peace and security; protect individuals from all forms of violence and abuse; and strengthen the resilience and capacity of communities and structures to reduce risk of disasters.

What is this?

This section provides a third draft of the Vision of the framework.

The original draft was developed using materials from civil society and other sources, including the Millennium Declaration, Civicus World Assembly declarations, material from the High Level Panel, inputs from human rights organisations and several other aspects of the Beyond 2015 campaign.

A second draft was produced after a workshop in Geneva in January 2013 (see here) and the third one is the result of the discussions at the Nairobi workshop (11-12 June 2013).

What now?

You are encouraged to look at the drafts and let us know what you think of them by sending your comments and rate the current versions using the form below.

Whenever the satisfaction levels on these sections dip below 50%, this will trigger an automatic redraft.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to the definition of our common positions going forwards and of the lens through which Beyond 2015 assesses the High Level Panel’s and other UN actors’ reports and positions! 

You will find more information on this process in Beyond2015's Content Strategy here.

To achieve a sustained poverty eradication, social justice, peace, safety, security, and well being, we need not only to protect the existing natural world but we must ensure the restoration of the natural world that has been degraded. Millions of KM2 of tropical rainforest and land has been degraded in only the last one hundred years. We must work to restore this. Protecting what is left is NOT enough. "The environment is safeguarded" section needs to be redrafted to: "Where the natural world is restored and protected, and planetary boundaries are respected by all through sustainable natural resource management".

The visions are more inclusive and specific hence we can sustain these.

Hi there, I like very much what we have come up with as a VISION - but it would be good if there was a version that could be used in written material and publicity. Ultimately something more along these lines. Dignity and human rights for all Equity, equality and justice Respect for nature and planetary boundaries Peace through disarmament, demilitarization and non-violent dispute settlement Fair economic and financial systems Democratic and participatory decision-making structures (

We have also had a discussion about the use of the words "tiny elite". This may be a translation problem but to us tiny conjures up visions of insignificant and harmless rather than powerful and insidious. The one percent may be better?

Quick thought - why is wellbeing mention in other sections, but not in Vision? Wellbeing is one component that links 2015 goals with post-2015 goals, so why not make it part of vision?
