October 17th is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Building on the many movements and actions that traditionally take place on this day, the World We Want Platform will host its next interactive People's Voices Series event.
Representatives of non-governmental organizations, community organizations, social movements, youth-led organizations, UN agencies, Member States, private sector, media and academia are invited to attend.
The theme for this year’s International Day for the Eradication of poverty is “working together towards a world without discrimination: building on the experience and knowledge of people in extreme poverty.”
As always, the “People’s Voices” Series will respond to people's voices calling for an end to poverty and present people’s ideas for global development around important themes and topics. It will include an overview of how the World We Want platform can gather the voices of the most marginalized and impoverished, bring them to the United Nations and the world stage, and facilitate deeper discussion, stronger action, accountability, and response to these voices by all actors.
MODERATOR: John Hendra, Assistant Secretary General, Deputy Executive Director, UN Women
