Who we are

Beyond 2015 is a global civil society campaign, pushing for a strong and legitimate successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals.

The campaign, created in 2010, is built on a diverse, global base. It ranges from small community based organisations to international NGOs, academics and trade unions. A founding principle of the campaign is that it is a partnership between civil society organisations from the ‘North’ and the ‘South’ – bringing together groups from developing, emerging and developed economies.

The campaign brings together more than 1000 Civil Society Organisations from over the world. For a list of participating organisations, click here. To see the list of 132 countries where there are Beyond 2015 participating organisations, click here.

The campaign has a Secretariat team (based in South Africa, Belgium, the UK and the USA), as well as Regional Coordinators for Africa, Asia, Latin America, Pacific and Europe. The Beyond 2015 Executive Committee meets monthly by conference call and minutes are posted here.

What we want

Beyond 2015 works with others to build a global, multi-stakeholder civil society movement for a legitimate post-2015 framework.

We seek to create a civil society consensus around a minimum standard of legitimacy for a post-2015 framework, both in terms of the process and the framework itself. Using this consensus, Beyond 2015 aims to influence the creation of such a framework at both the national and international level.

Whilst participating organisations have a range of views regarding the content of a post-2015 framework, we are united in working together to achieve the following:

  • A global, overarching, cross-thematic framework to succeed the Millennium Development Goals, reflecting Beyond 2015’s policy positions.
  • The process of developing this framework is participatory, inclusive and responsive to the voices of those directly affected by poverty and injustice.
