    GSO General Assembly: 2015 Challenges and Opportunities

    On Tuesday, 23 June 2015, the Global Social Observatory will hold its annual General Assembly from 9:00 to 12 noon, with a special programme to publicize the GSO perspective on “2015 Challenges and Opportunities:  Contributions from the Geneva International Scene” at the Ecumenical Centre.   Please note the change of date and location.   Please confirm your attendance by replying to this email or calling us and leaving a message at +41 22 723 2791.

    The programme will start with a presentation of an In-depth Brief on the interplay between conflict-of-interest issues and building trust in multi-stakeholder partnerships.  The Brief is based on the recently completed GSO project supporting the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement on conflict of interest.

    Following a coffee break, there will be a dialogue on the challenges and opportunities for multi-stakeholder partnerships in support of the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Solutions Agenda of the Climate Change Summit.  The dialogue will draw on a project being developed by the GSO in association with the Office of the Director-General of the United Nations Office at Geneva.

    At the conclusion of the programme, participants will be invited to discuss an Action Plan for a Geneva-based platform on building partnerships for the proposed Sustainable Development Goals in the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the Solutions Agenda of the Climate Change Summit.

    Again, please let us know if you are able to join us on 23 June by responding to this email or calling us and leaving a message at +41 22 723 2791.   We will send the In-depth Brief, proposed Action Plan and a final agenda before the event to everyone who has confirmed their attendance.
