New York, 21 March 2013 – The United Nations presents today, the first findings from an unprecedented global conversation through which people from all over the world have been invited to help Member States shape the future development agenda that will build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after their target date at the end of 2015.

Three emerging priorities for the future development agenda, referred to as 'the Post-2015 agenda,' can be identified:

  • First, the progress on MDGs should be accelerated and adapted to contemporary challenges, such as growing inequalities within countries and the impact of globalization.
  • Second, the consultations point to the need for a universal agenda to address challenges like environmental degradation, unemployment, and violence.
  • Third, people want to participate, both in the agenda-setting as well as monitoring the progress in implementation of the Post-2015 framework.

So far, the United Nations has engaged more than 200,000 people from 189 countries through a mix of digital media, mobile phone applications, conferences, and paper ballot surveys. UN teams in Member States are undertaking special efforts to ensure that groups that are usually absent from participation in global processes – for example, women, indigenous communities, the youth, people with disabilities – are consulted on what they see as priorities for development of their communities.

There are several tracks available for people to participate in framing the next development agenda: there are almost 100 national consultations in Member States; there are eleven thematic consultations on issues such as inequalities, food security, and access to water; people continue to contribute their ideas through the World We Want 2015 web site; and people vote for six out of 16 priorities through the MY World survey.

Findings from the global conversation will be delivered to the UN Secretary-General, Heads of State and Government attending the 2013 UN General Assembly, the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals, and other processes.

The "Global Conversation Begins" report will be presented to the High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda - chaired by Prime Minister of UK David Cameron and Presidents Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia and Susilo Yudhoyono of Indonesia - in the panel's meeting in Bali at the end of this month.

enfoques y resultados de estudios en esta materia, cuando me abordó una chica como de 28 años, quien me dijo que estaba muy interesada en lo que yo había comentado. Me confesó que era maestra de telesecundaria en una región indígena del estado de Veracruz y que quería manejar el tema con sus estudiantes, pero que no sabía cómo. Sus palabras fueron más o menos como sigue:
“Maestro, yo no puedo decirles a mis alumnos que participen en el combate al cambio climático ahorrando energía porque en sus casas no hay luz eléctrica; ni puedo decirles que ahorren agua, porque para ellos el agua es un bien muy preciado http://eyesonbroadway.com/

"Growing inequalities within countries and the impact of globalization".2."Environmental degradation, unemployment, and violence".3."People participation, both in the agenda-setting as well as monitoring the progress in implementation of the Post-2015 framework."

With these three issues we need to progress in making a future programme for developmental issues.How it can be done,is through dialogue,through community engagement,through the Morales which were left out in the industrialization period.Generation of employment has to be part of developmental agenda.Industrialization has to address environmental issues.

Globalized order will be possible if we care for local people,and make them part of establishments and partners in development.
Of all the society,social issues,the morale of the people,the culture and the respect for the same.Preservation of heritage and giving new systems in an orderly fashion,shall avoid all such problems the London population has witnessed during the industrial revolution period.After all we know the issues and similar solutions,still we leave the regulations a little loose so that some one can conspire to break it.
Let us force the governments to post some laws in class 10 cirriculam,on rules of road,on "Panchatantra "stories"Arabian nights""o-Henry" etc,along with rights,responsibilities etc.Ask the Government establishments,like police and defense to exhibit a good citizen character.These can be a beginning along with same shown in pictures and news papers.
The breakers of systems,servers,and the codes are none other than our distinct relatives,and we cannot go on punishing them ,with out teaching them that it is unethical,and illegal and punishable.

With vast technology in reach,how can we provide jobs for massess.Because we have developed many machines for use in construction,infrastructure,and aggriculture.The farming and aggriculture are no more lucarative with out the machines in major parts of the world.The use of computers and internet have contributed for increse in education,literacy,health and transport.However earnings for the average worker have to increase and middle class money has to be protected in the share markets.The greediness and volatile issues of the production and share markets are to be regularized.
The entrepreneur has a tendency to make money and lift it from the country before it is known.So ways to check the money flows from the country to other countries are needed.
These issues are not new to the world,similar problems have occured even before the world war -1.Hence we have the knowledge to contain such systems,which needs to be modernized.

The Report of the High-Level Panel is excellent. The creation of an Universal Agenda with 5 transformational shifts is the key to to accomplishing Universal Goals and setting National Targets, which are eloquently identified. I am quite amazed that over 200,000 individuals participated in the consultative process to date. Thank you for aggregating the comments and feedback so that the voices of so many individuals and groups in Civil Society is reflected in the New Global Partnership report.

Now, we need leadership. This leadership is required to get all Nations to adopt these as their own goals and targets, and to bring Universal commitment to implementation among all the parties involved. We must convince all Nations that this New Global Partnership is not simply wishful thinking, but an agenda we can actually realize.

And we must act now, otherwise this opportunity could be lost. The UN must continue to involve as many people as possible, not only to formulate the Goals and Targets, but also to monitor the implementation and provide feedback to a UN coordinating body until at least 2015.

Solving acute political and social crises is a short term action that must be carried out. But in the long run I believe education will have an immense influence on the structure of the society. Awareness is the key to most of world’s issues be it corrupt governance, gender discrimination or environmental hazards. A government is first and foremost a body by the people. People of a nation, when fuelled with awareness, can tackle corrupt governance. When it comes to gender disparity, once again education has a key role to play. The wide educational gap between the genders is a salient cause of gender disparity. Also education will be a tool that empowers women. It opens their eyes to the rights they are entitled to. Furthermore education is a huge confidence booster to women as it rewards them with employment and eradicates their dependency. And lastly, in concern with tackling environmental problems, creating awareness is half the job done. The world needs to see innovation in the form of alternate resources and ideas to lower pollution

Mis preocupaciones son varias con respecto a lo que ocurre en la sociedad mundial en estos instantes, se debería sancionar de inmediatamente a los gobiernos anti democráticos y como el del Estado de Siria que no busca la solvencia integra de su pueblo, tan solo mata por matar a los civiles en lugar de llegar a acuerdos claros y concisos con los rebeldes, acuerdo que puede ser mediado con la intervención de la ONU.
La India debería generar sanciones por parte de la ONU al no mostrar una veraz preocupación ante los recientes hechos de violación hacia la vida de las mujeres, que representan un publo sometido a la discriminación por ser mujeres.
Es preocupante también la falta de seriedad de los Estados de Medio Oriente, ante la falta de cuidados y beneficios que poseen los trabajadores de las empresas textiles multimillonarias, que pasan a un extremo la pobre realidad de sus empleados y el cuidado al ambiente.
Es importante que haya una intervención de la INTERPOL sobre la presidente de Argentina ya que su gobierno esta bañado en lavado de dinero, y su fortuna es ilícita.
Es importante que se lleve a todos los países a un compromiso, que conlleve a la preservación de la naturaleza y de as especies animales y vegetales, sería muy importante la creación de medidas que sancionen a los Estados en los que es permitido la caza de la fauna silvestre.

Education is the closest thing to magic in the world. Nothing can transform a person’s life the way education can. It instills confidence and gifts people with a voice. Apart from the obvious benefits of a better lifestyle and a more meaningful life, education can lead to a better society at large; a society with people aware of their rights and duties.

El desarrollo de la educación ambiental en los distintos subsistemas educativos a nivel mundial ha partido de un supuesto erróneo. Se ha considerado que el cambio de actitudes y valores hacia el medio ambiente se encuentra alineado con el nivel de información que la gente posee sobre los procesos y fenómenos del mundo físico natural. Este supuesto ha sido denominado el modelo del déficit informativo y numerosas investigaciones sobre su aplicación han demostrado que es un modelo fallido. La gente mejor informada es capaz de reconocer la importancia del medio ambiente en sus vidas y a identificar mejor los problemas de su entorno inmediato e incluso lejano, pero eso no conduce a una modificación de sus hábitos y costumbres en su vida cotidiana. Si así fuera la gente que posee más años de educación escolar sería la más educada ambientalmente y eso no es necesariamente así, ni a nivel individual ni a nivel de países. El problema es que después de treinta años de aplicación de dicho modelo se continúa insistiendo en el mismo.
Lo anterior no implica que se omita proporcionar información sobre los asuntos ambientales en los procesos escolarizados. Los malos resultados derivan de considerar que eso será suficiente y no impulsar otras estrategias educativas más afines con la formación de valores. Aún más, los contenidos que se incorporan en los procesos educativos relacionados con el medio ambiente, a menudo resultan ser contenidos de las ciencias naturales; “contenidos ecológicos” como equivocadamente reza el artículo 39 de la Ley General del Equilibrio Ecológico y Protección al Ambiente y que es reproducido en la mayoría de las leyes estatales sobre medio ambiente. En esta deficiencia deriva de una noción de que el medio ambiente es naturaleza entendida, además, como problema.
Por lo mismo, en los planes y programas de estudio suele haber una ausencia clara de articulación de los contenidos de las ciencias naturales y de los problemas sociales, perdiendo de vista que los problemas ambientales son profundamente sociales; que tienen una base de deterioro ecológico sí, pero que al afectar la calidad de vida se convierten en problemáticas sociales. Esta articulación es la que no se trabaja en las escuelas. De este modo, a la educación ambiental le es suprimida su dimensión política.
Ello permite explicar, al menos en parte, la precaria participación de la gente en asuntos que tienen una gran relevancia para sus vidas. Recientemente han estado apareciendo noticias en los medios de comunicación noticias muy serias amenazas para la calidad de nuestras vidas y las de nuestros hijos. Asuntos como la ampliación del Puerto de Veracruz, la minera Caballo Blanco, la destrucción de humedales y dunas costeras y la desforestación, por citar sólo algunas, son asuntos que se perciben como poco prioritarios para la gente común, pero también para la mayoría de la llamada clase política. Inexplicablemente también para un gran sector universitario, lo que confirma nuevamente la invalidez del modelo del déficit informativo.
La educación ambiental tiene un gran potencial de formación de ciudadanía, esto es, de atender cuatro rasgos básicos: a) identidad, b) valores, c) participación política y d) requerimientos sociales para ejercerla. Ello implica que educar para una ciudadanía ambiental es desarrollar la conciencia de sí mismo como un miembro de una sociedad democrática compartida, con énfasis en los enfoques participativos para involucrarse en los asuntos políticos que afectan nuestra calidad de vida, y atendiendo aquéllas desventajas sociales y circunstancias institucionales que obstruyen el que la gente ejerza sus derechos y deberes a plenitud. Tenemos muchas oportunidades para trabajar educativamente en esta dirección. De nosotros depende.
