Globalization has drastically changed our world in the past few decades, leading to a degree of interconnectedness we have not seen before. In an unprecedented effort to tackle the challenges posed by global inequalities in eight areas, the Millenium Development Goals set an agenda to help the world's poorest until 2015. Despite all efforts to promote global equity, however, inequalities persist. It is therefore time to reflect about a post-2015 development agenda addressing current challenges ranging from climate change and sustainable energy to the question of hunger as well as education and youth.
The European Forum Alpbach offers a forum of discussion for distinguished key actors from governments, the private sector, civil society and international organisations in its Closing Event 2013. Reflecting about the post-2015 agenda, we will ask what the global community can do to achieve a fair globalization.
Due to limited capacity at the venue, only registered participants of this year’s main events can be granted access to the Closing Event. Separate Registration per e-mail is required. Further Information here.
