15/15/15 Voluntary Committments initiative is open for endorsement by individuals and organizations
During implementation formalized partnerships will be established with global youth networks and related initiatives of different international organizations like e.g. Volunteer Action Counts campaign of United Nations Volunteers, Earth Charter Youth network, etc.
Description/achievement of initiative
15/15/15 catch phrase indicates that 15 billion Euros and 15 million volunteers shall be mobilized by global civil society for SD efforts by the year 2015; in addition to these easily measurable targets, the initiative aims at innovating the UN system by developing mechanisms for civil society participation in responses to global challenges on local and global level. Thus 15/15/15 voluntary commitment aims at a cultural shift and new institutions (Global Challenges Center at UN HQ in NY, Global Forum on Innovative Resource Mobilization for Education and Science, Global Challenges centers and programs) for civil society participation in SD governance.
