UN75 People's Declaration Feedback Form
The 75th Anniversary of the United Nations marks a key opportunity for global civil society to share its views on the state of world affairs, global governance, and the way forward.
The UN2020 campaign is working to draft a civil society declaration to be presented at the UN75 People’s Forum taking place on 23 April 2020. Your inputs will inform the advocacy going forward as member states begin to negotiate the UN75 political declaration to be completed by June and adopted by Heads of State at the UN75 World Leaders' Summit on 21 September 2020.
The preliminary zero draft may be found at
. This does not represent the only opportunity to contribute as drafts of the declaration will continue to be shared online beginning 4 March.
UN2020 has appointed Daniel Perell of the Baha’i International Community as the lead coordinator of the drafting team. Please fill out this form and/or send feedback directly to
using the subject line “Feedback on UN75 People's Declaration”.
Name (first and last)
Organization (if you wish to provide)
Should the document be shortened to be more concise? Lengthened to elaborate further? How can "say what needs to be said" and ensure the document is brief enough that it will be read? It currently stands at 5 pages.
Do you think the most appropriate concerns are drawn out? Should we add more of the crises humanity faces? Should we replace some of what we have with other issues? If more should be added, or replaced, please make proposals.
Is the structure of the document appropriate? If not, how should it be modified? Should sections be removed/added/shortened/lengthened? Please make concrete proposals. The structure is: 1. Congratulate the UN, 2. The role of civil society, 3. Highlighting global concerns and the opportunities they present for global governance, 4. Identifying the underlying needs (comprehensive), 5. Presenting civil society proposals
To what degree of detail should we go for the proposals we are making? Two of them are quite detailed, while the third is functionally a list (at this moment). How do we balance, again, the need for brevity and for explaining our proposals? What would you suggest to improve upon what is there?
Is the tone appropriate? Is it too optimistic? Too pessimistic? Too critical? How would you suggest we change it?
Do you think there is a way that the annexes could/should be used going forward?
Please add anything else here that you would like. The more concrete the recommendation the easier it will be to consider and implement.
