As the 2015 deadline of the Millennium Development Goals draws near, the international community is preparing to define a new global framework for the future. With half of the world’s population under 25 and set to inherit this post-2015 world, it is critical that the views and perspectives of young people are at the heart of this discussion and that they have their say in the post-2015 decisions.

Recognising the valuable role that young people can play in shaping future development goals, the Kofi Annan Foundation and the United Nations Foundation are hosting a dialogue between global leaders and young people on the development priorities of particular importance to them: a good education, better job opportunities, better healthcare and action on climate change.

Join the Dialogue on 13 May and have your say on the world you want:
