Discussing “The World We Want”
Regular readers of this blog will know that we have great hopes for the 2013 Irish EU Presidency. (See e.g. this blog post)
And to make sure that we use the opportunity provided by the EU Presidency, we have initiated a series of discussions among NGOs in Ireland, about the priorities that we would like Ireland to set for its Presidency.
And we have created a new home for that conversation:
Our new website – www.WorldWeWant.ie
What you will find on the website:
- A short video (2min25) setting out why the Irish Presidency is so important.
- A background document, with information about the Millennium Development Goals.
- A calendar of events, listing all the main opportunities for you to debate ‘A better Ireland in a fairer World‘.
- A blog, where everyone can contribute to the discussions.
See for instance these recent blog posts:
- Lots and lots of reading material on the discussions about a new sustainable development framework.
We hope you will visit the site, and join in the debate!
The UN is hosting a series of ‘national consultations’ in many developing countries about the ‘Post 2015 Development Framework’.
We feel strongly that such debates should also take place in richer countries.
And that is why we are hosting, through the World We Want project, our own national consultation, here in Ireland.
