On Thursday, July 18th, Nelson Mandela International Day, the World We Want Platform will host the inaugural interactive session of its new People's Voices Series. Representatives of non-governmental organizations, community organizations, social movements, youth-led organizations, UN agencies, Member States, private sector, media and academia are invited to attend.
Hosted by The World We Want Policy and Strategy Group (with members from Civil Society and the United Nations) the event will showcase and respond to people's voices calling for an end to poverty and present people’s ideas for global development. It will include an overview of how the World We Want platform can gather the voices of the most marginalized and impoverished, bring them to the United Nations and the world stage, and facilitate deeper discussion, stronger action, accountability, and response to these voices by all actors. Additionally, three new consultation spaces on the World We Want will be launched: for children, for youth, and for faith-based organizations.
