BYND 2015 Hubs

​​​​​

Hubs are offsite locations designed to feed localized input into the discussions at the BYND2015 Summit. Literally speaking, a hub is just a physical space that can be used to bring people and ideas together around a common cause. Hubs should ideally provide a co-creative environment and provide a good network connection for link-up with Costa Rica.
 
Learn more about the roles of the hubs here.

We, as the Brazilian Youth Coalition for the Post-2015, are involved with as many processes of the post-2015 development agenda as we can, by doing this we may facilitate the participation of young people from Brazil into the debates of the new Millennium Development Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals. With the BYND2015 we hope that we can also help those without access to the internet to also collaborate with the solutions that we need for the pos-2015

The main reason what we wanted to set up a hub is because we believe that our experience can benefit young people from all over the world.The aim of this blog is to encourage youth to participate in the summit in every possible form (online,live,..) but also to show them that involving themselves in such events is a great way to broaden their horizons.Furthermore,this blog is a platform build by young people for young people.
