Webinar: Post-2015 Development Agenda, Ethics and Youth

3 out of the 8 Millenium Development Goals have been met, but there is still much to do in order to achieve a sustainable development. The Post-2015 agenda will define a new set of goals to try to tackle the major world development challenges in areas such as health, poverty, education and the environment, among others.
In partnership with the United Nations Associations Network (UNYANET), ECI will provide this free webinar in order to discuss and assess this new agenda through an ethical lens, as well as to determine the role that youth have in its implementation.
