The Future We (really) Want: Lets build the future WE want together

 

We come together because 2015 is a generational opportunity for transformational change. Two processes (COP - UNFCCC and the finalisation of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda) culminate within months of each other with the potential to shape the future of our people and our planet.

Our aim is to inspire actions that empower the marginalised and collectively tackle the root causes of inequality, injustice, poverty and climate change.

  • We want a world where development justice is assured and all people are able to realise their rights.
  • We want a world where everyone is able to equally and freely participate in the decisions that affect their lives and hold governments, international institutions, the private sector, civil society and other power holders accountable.
  • We need to urgently address the challenges posed by economic and political systems that favour elites and concentrate power and prosperity in the hands of a few.
  • We must transform production and consumption patterns so that they do not harm people and the planet.

The testament of our success is that concrete actions are taken now, agreements are ambitious, reflect local struggles and leave no one behind. We call for a transparent and inclusive process for the articulation, implementation and monitoring of such a framework.

Our vision is a transformational shift that ensures gender justice and enables everyone to live their lives in dignity, free from hunger and from the fear of violence, oppression, discrimination or injustice, in a way that protects the planetary systems required for survival of life on earth.

This is the world we want and believe can be achieved.
