The Philippine Social Enterprise Network was heavily involved in Beyond 2015 as the national lead agency for the Philippines. PhilSEN’s Gomer Padong also served in the Beyond 2015 Executive Committee from 2014-2016. Beyond 2015 is a global civil society campaign, pushing for a strong and legitimate successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals. The campaign, created in 2010, is built on a diverse, global base. It ranges from small community based organisations to international NGOs, academics and trade unions. A founding principle of the campaign is that it is a partnership between civil society organisations from the ‘North’ and the ‘South’ – bringing together groups from developing, emerging and developed economies. Read more about the history of Beyond 2015. Beyond 2015 brings together more than 1,500 Civil Society Organisations from 139 countries all over the world. Of these, 56% are Southern CSOs and 44% are Northern CSOs - in 41 countries in Africa, 29 countries in Asia and the Pacific, 35 countries in Europe, 2 countries in North America and 26 countries in Latin America.
Asia-Pacific Regional CSO Engagement Mechanism (APRCEM)
( www.asiapacificrcem.org )
APRCEM is a civil society platform aimed to enable stronger cross constituency coordination and ensure that voices of all sub-regions of Asia Pacific are heard in intergovernmental processes in regional and global level. The platform is initiated, owned and driven by the CSOs, and seeks to engage with UN agencies and Member States on the Post-2015 as well as other development related issues/processes. As an open, inclusive, and flexible mechanism, RCEM is designed to reach the broadest number of CSOs in the region, harness the voice of grassroots and peoples’ movements to advance development justice that address the inequalities of wealth, power, resources between countries, between rich and poor and between men and women. PhilSEN is focal point for the constituency on Social and Community Businesses of the APRCEM.
