65TH ANNUAL UN DPI/NGO CONFERENCE (UNITED NATIONS HEADQUARTERS, 27-29 AUGUST 2014)

UN2The invitation is out! Using the title “2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda” and carrying the theme of “The role of civil society in the post-2015 development agenda”, the Department of Public Information (DPI) is setting the stage for a transition to a “bold new generation of people-centered and planet-sensitive development”.

Constituencies will be working on the issues of climate change, sustainable development effectiveness, environment, economic justice, human rights, and gender equality. It is a rare opportunity for NGOs to strengthen existing networking and good practices, and create new ones as they move toward achieving a “new social contract that reflects a strong and radical movement of hope and transformation”. It will be yet another opportunity for civil society to contribute its vast diversity in support of the post-2015 negotiations. The Sisters of Notre Dame, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, and the School Sisters of Notre Dame are making an application to sponsor a workshop on quality education entitled, “Four Zeros Add up to Positives for Education”, the four being: zero exclusion, zero discrimination against girls, zero child labor, and zero child marriage. We will again reflect the responses from Nari Gunjan.
