The time to act is now. Be part of the journey towards a sustainable future, building the future WE want.
In June 2012, 40,000 people met in Rio de Janeiro and agreed that change was needed in response to the severe sustainability challenges that the world is facing and which demand coordinated global responses.
Following up on Rio+20, the UN is continuing its efforts to promote sustainable development and to prepare a new development agenda that will take us beyond 2015.
The UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) is taking action. On 24 September, the Council will gather government representatives from all over the world to focus on sustainable development.
To help shape the conversation at this upcoming ministerial meeting, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the Department of Public Information have launched an online forum to collect your input.
Post your questions from 12 -- 24 September on Facebook at http://bit.ly/ecosocWE or via Twitter using #FutureWEwant and #Beyond2015, and select questions will be answered live on UN Webcast http://webtv.un.org on 24 September 2012.
