Proposal : A Framework for Global Sustainability Goals

Summary :
In September of 2010, a group of people from various civil society organisations (CSOs) came together to discuss the unprecedented coincidence of global crises: the economic and financial crisis, the food crisis, as well as the intensifying climate crisis. The key messages have been reached by consensus. We are all convinced that the principles and values of the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development and the UN Millennium Declaration are under siege and urgently need to be revived. This includes the imperatives of human rights, freedom, equality, solidarity, diversity, respect for nature, and common but differentiated responsibilities. Corporate interests do not uphold these principles and values. Unbridled market forces have favoured the strong, thereby widening the economic divide. This requires the state to redress the imbalance, eliminate discrimination, and ensure sustainable livelihoods, decent work and social inclusion. Intergenerational justice requires restraint and responsibility on the part of the present generation. It is urgent to establish more equitable per capita rights towards the global commons and to the emission of greenhouse gases, taking fully into account historical responsibility. The state has to be re-affirmed as the indispensable actor setting the legal frame, enforcing standards of equity and human rights, and fostering long-term ecological thinking, based on democratic legitimacy. 6 goals developed and  possible targets suggested across all proposed goals.
