First Post-2015 Public Consultation
November 14 & 15, 2014

The San Diego Chapter of the United Nations Association proudly hosted its first Civic (Public) Consultation on the United Nations’ Post-2015 Agenda that sought to engage the public on global issues: inequalities, health, education and environmental sustainability. San Diego was one of thirtythree cities in the United States to host the Public Consultation in addition to countless cities around the world who conducted similar events.

This major civil society gathering was the first of its kind in San Diego by offering a platform for local civil society, private sector, academia and activists to provide input and engage on development issues that most impact their lives. The conference provided an opportunity to ensure that the views and contributions of our local civil society feed into the United Nations’ Post-2015 Agenda and subsequent global framework which will be finalized in September 2015 at the UN in New York City.

During the conference, participants learned about the United Nations’ eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) with its respective seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Four (4) thematic breakout sessions enabled individuals to discuss their views on policy frameworks and inclusion specifically related to Education, Environment, Gender Equity and Health.
