Post-2015 Dialogues

UNV co-leads the global dialogue on partnership with civil society and supports national dialogues through its volunteers

471075The UNDG Dialogues on the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda continue the global conversation on the future development framework.  Consultations in 2013 focused on “what” should go in the new agenda; in 2014, six dialogues focus on “how” the new agenda should be implemented.

Choose your priorities for a better world


UNV supports MY World and the Global Week of Action as a contribution to make the ongoing post-2015 consultations process truly inclusive.

MY World is the UN global survey asking people to select their development priorities. Votes, to be collected until 2015, are used to guide global decision-makers in the formulation of the new development goals to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after they expire in 2015.

Why tweet #actioncounts
It's about being heard by the right people at the right time.

Volunteers around the world can sometimes feel that their contribution to society goes unnoticed. Now is the perfect time to be heard, and where better to do it than at the meeting aiming to set goals for the way we will live on this planet over the next decades.

We invite all volunteers—present, past and future—to sign in to our website. We want to see and celebrate what you are doing. We want to keep you informed on upcoming events, opportunities and best practices. Everyone is invited to join in, from individuals to entire organizations. Share your stories with us. Build a community. Show the world volunteering matters. Your #actioncounts.
