©United Nations in Serbia - Tens of thousands across the country are joining to define the “Serbia We Want”

The official presentation of the preliminary results of the "Serbia We Want" initiative will be held tomorrow, 28 March at the VUK Culture Center in Belgrade, Serbia. The preliminary results from the more than 10,000 collected and processed proposals from people across the country, will be presented by William Infante, UNCT Resident Coordinator and Slobodan Cvejic from the Secons Group for Development.

On this occasion, an exhibition of drawings and photographs of children who participated in the art contest "Serbia We Want" will be displayed, while the best six young artists will be awarded with valuable art books. The event will also be an opportunity for the first live music performance of the anthem song of the initiative "Life is beautiful", by renowned team of musicians.

Since mid-January, throughout Serbia, a wide national consultation process for post-2015 development agenda is being held, within the framework of the "Serbia We Want" initiative. The aim of the initiative is to include as many people as possible and collect diverse and good quality proposals, which will help to define sustainable development goals at the global level after 2015. Proposals were collected through an online survey at http://www.srbijakakvuzelim.rs/ and direct consultations, including workshops, public debates, discussions and interviews, as well as social networks and the media.

The process is coordinated by the United Nations in Serbia under the guidance of a dedicated UN Working Group of which UNESCO, through its Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe, is regularly contributing to.  Activities are being carried out in collaboration with Secons Group for Development from Belgrade.
