It will help develop common CSO agendas and benefit the UN General Assembly efforts to bring together the voices and reflections of key organisations and compare the results of different national consultations.

It provides an informal space for in-depth discussions for civil society activists and scholars from all parts of the world to explore conventional and alternative models of development and well-being.
