Beyond 2015 works on the ‘content’ of a post-2015 framework through an open, participatory process to develop a shared, global civil society position on 4 conceptual foundations of the framework:

What are the Vision, Purpose, Values and Criteria?


This is the broader state in which we want the world to be and towards which we want the post-2015 framework to be working.


This is the particular role of the framework, describing exactly how the framework is going to contribute towards the changes necessary to achieve the vision.


The Values are both elements that are integral to our Vision – a world where these Values are embodied – and means by which we will achieve our Purpose -as they also govern the process of implementation of the framework.


The criteria are means to evaluate specific proposals for goals. These should facilitate a basic but systematic assessment of whether a proposed goal is a strong option for a post-2015 framework.

The latest stage of Beyond 2015’s VPVC process (Vision, Purpose, Values, Criteria) has been to build potential targets for a post-2015 framework, based on our values.
