Post-2015 advocacy

Post-2015 advocacy

We called for a development framework that:

  1. Increases women’s power over the decisions and processes that affect them, (see our Women in Power campaign)
  2. Recognises and supports the unique contribution that volunteers and volunteer groups make to sustainable development.

Our work influencing the Global Goals

The global framework for the Post-2015 agenda, or Sustainable Development Goals (now called Global Goals) will guide the work of governments, NGOs and individuals for years to come.

VSO was involved in conversations and consultative processes on the Post-2015 agenda since the process began (see a timeline of key events). 

Our post-2015 advocacy work is grounded in the knowledge and experience of our volunteers and partners, and we are working to ensure that their voices are heard at the highest level.

Through our work with other partners, we also lent our experience and evidence to ensure that the framework addresses the issues of quality education and inclusive healthcare. 

To recognise the contribution of volunteers to development, VSO alongside partner organisations including UNV, IAVE and AVI launched the 500 Days 500 Ways campaign, which aims to give visibility to the action of volunteers for peace and development.

We also produced a number of influential reports calling for focus on key issues around the goals:
