In a historic partnership with the  United Nations Foundation and the United Nations Development Programme, Iowa City will serve as one of ten American cities hosting a discussion for your input on the future global agenda of the United Nations.   Concerned citizens, representatives of national and local non-profit and community organizations, educators, environmentalists, and local development leaders will convene to provide the United Nations with Iowa’s vision for “The World We Want”.   Remarks will be made by former Congressman Jim Leach and former U.S. Ambassador Ron McMullen.

Around the world, UN Country teams have been convening national consultations on the post 2015 development agenda, a global strategy that would succeed the Millennium Development Goals.  The primary objective of these consultations is to exchange ideas and gather views on a shared vision of “The World We Want”, in an open process tailored to country contexts.  This global conversation responds to a growing call for active participation in shaping the ‘world we want’.  The consultations are intended to provide evidence and perspectives to governments on the challenges people face in improving their lives and those of their families and communities.

The objective of the U.S. consultation program is to gather views from stakeholders throughout the United States about the post-2015 development agenda, what they want for themselves and the global community. The program aims to invite wider participation in the dialogue about the post-2015 global development framework and foster a community of advocates who will remain engaged and provide grassroots level support for the post-2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

A limited amount of reservations are still available.  Please contact emilyharmon@unaiowa.org for a registration link.
