2015 will be a critical year for the global community and the United Nations. It is the year we face several decisions – on disaster risk reduction, financing for development, sustainable development and climate – that will shape our collective futures for generations to come.
Earlier this year the Department of Public Information launched “2015: Time for Global Action”, the UN system-wide campaign that aims to build public
support for the sustainable development agenda and show how the issues behind some of this year’s most important events are interconnected.
As part of the campaign, a new website – www.un.org/action2015 – is now live and will shortly be available in all six official UN languages. This website will serve as a source of news, as a portal to UN system websites, and as the anchor for a robust social media campaign. It will also link to the extensive civil society mobilization under way through the concurrent Action 2015 campaign.
