Share your thoughts through an online discussion on the Sustainable Development Goals. The Guardian (UK) online news invites your participation.
What should be included in the sustainable development goals to promote women’s equality and empowerment, and will they work?
"Decisions made in 2015 will help shape the women’s rights agenda for the next 15 years. In September, world leaders will endorse a new set of development goals at the UN. The proposed sustainable development goals (SDGs), which will replace the millennium development goals (MDGs), feature a standalone goal on gender, which encourages the world to “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
The invitation to participate notes that the UN starts negotiations next week on finalising the SDGs.
Are the targets sufficient? Has anything been missed out or lost in the discussions?
