FEPS at UN Civil Society Conference in Kenya

16/05/2024

FEPS organised the panel “Civil Society Recommendations on the 5 Chapters of the Pact for the Future, Declaration on Future Generations, and Global Digital Compact” at the United Nations Civil Society Conference in Nairobi, Kenya.

The Conference served as a crucial platform for civil societies and NGOs to engage in data-driven discussions ahead of the upcoming Summit of the Future in September 2024 at the UN Headquarters in New York, marking the final opportunity to shape the forthcoming Pact of the Future.

Against the backdrop of alarming trends of regression and widening inequalities exacerbated by resource constraints, FEPS aimed to leverage this occasion to advocate for a New Global Deal. Through our new book “A New Global Deal“, we wanted to open dialogue across all continents on the urgent need to reform global governance and policies to address the current global challenges.

FEPS President Maria João Rodrigues presented insights from the book “A New Global Deal“.
