IAAI – ACUNS Vienna Workshop
Innovative Resource Mobilization
for Post -2015 Multi-Stakeholder Action and Youth Engagement
Held as pre-Conference event to ACUNS Vienna UN Conference 2015
Date: 13 January 2015, 9.30-12.30 AM
Venue: Vienna International Center, Conference Room C5, Wagramer Strasse 5, Vienna, Austria
in cooperation with
The year 2015 and the ongoing laudably participatory post2015 Sustainable Development Agenda (including Climate Change) negotiations offer a unique opportunity to modernize United Nations system and to make humanity’s global challenges response mechanisms more effective by utilizing available resources (knowledge, funding, workforce, social energy) of all relevant public and private actors.
As pointed out by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in his recent post2015 synthesis report, the new post2015 agenda is going to bring about a paradigm shift towards universality of goals and targets and multistakeholder responsibilities and accountabilities for their implementation.
At the workshop participants will explore – based on concepts, ICT tools and campaigns developed in the framework of Global Challenges (GloCha) Action network (see http://bit.ly/1tsgeOC for more details) – how the post2015 Development Agenda Means of Implementation design can facilitate resource mobilization by and for youth in order to enable enhanced youth led action on global challenges at local, national, regional and global levels.
An important parameter of the event is the fact that Austria is currently holding ECOSOC & HLPF presidency and that within this presidency the declared priorities are Civil Society participation and youth empowerment.
Another point of reference for the workshop is the UN DPI NGO Conference 2014 Outcome Document calling for a UN PGA Thematic Debate on “Multistakeholder Action & Innovative Resource Mobilization”.
The Outcomes of the workshop (including recommendations for ToRs of a potential UN PGA Thematic Debate on Innovative Resource Mobilization for Youth Focused Multistakeholder Action) will be communicated to the official post2015 intergovernmental negotiations in New York by means of a Side Event to the January 19-21 negotiations.
