In September 2010, the High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals requested the United Nations Secretary-General (UNSG) to make recommendations to advance the United Nations development agenda beyond 2015. In order to respond to this task the UNSG has initiated a broad process of consultations and debates aimed at defining a “development framework” to substitute the current Millennium Development Goals when their deadline is reached in 2015. Thousands of civil society organizations worldwide have actively participated in consultations. Often they have initiated consultations and launched their own events. CONCORD as the European NGO confederation for relief and development has taken an active role in shaping the new development framework.

The aim of this debate is within EU12 (EU member states after 2004):
• to understand the role of NGOs in framing post-2015 agenda;
• to examine the negotiation results at EU level and worldwide;
• to get to know if there are EU12 specific objectives for post-2015 framework;
• to inspire national level activities to stir up debate in EU12.

Agenda available online.
There is a possibility for all participants to share their information on development cooperation, development education, post-2015.

The discussion is organised in cooperation with Nordic Council of Ministers, Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, TRIALOG. Project partners: Finnish NGDO Platform to the EU, Eastern Europe Studies Center, Estonian Roundtable for Development.
