Towards 2015: Open Dialogue with the High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda: This event aimed at promoting an open dialogue between the UN HLP and civil society, researchers, the private sector, foundations and youth, to reflect the views of various stakeholders in the first meeting of the HLP. It was organised by the Permanent Mission of Japan to the UN and Beyond 2015 was a key supporting partner. Bernadette Fischler of CAFOD, representing Beyond 2015, had the opportunity to make a presentation, during which she affirmed Beyond 2015's intention to work with the HLP, challenged them to be "bold, visionary and courageous" and ensuring that they meaningfully consider the views of those most affected by poverty and injustice.
