Currently there is a call to join the Post-2015 global consultation on energy! Alongside the vision of the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative this is a call for collaboration on the most pressing issues we face today. As the world approaches 2015, the overall target date for achieving the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals), thinking has begun on how to advance the global development agenda beyond 2015. The establishment of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) to continue after the MDGs after 2015 is part of ongoing activities to ensure the energy transition towards a low-carbon, sustainable future is kept high on the international development agenda.
Right now, the Global Consultation on Energy is underway. It offers an opportunity to connect with a range of people to build a shared vision of the key energy challenges that will feed into the post-2015 development agenda. The aim is built a shared vision of the world we want in 2015.
Relevant information on the global conversation on the post-2015 development agenda can now be found at the ‘World We Want 2015′ Website which is jointly owned by United Nations agencies and civil society organizations. This is the online platform of the Global Thematic Consultation on Energy and it is built as an open and inclusive space to discuss the role of energy in the post-2015 development agenda.
