Bocabar, Bath Road, Bristol, UK
After months of negotiations, a high-level panel set up by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon has released its final report on development after the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire in 2015, setting out an ambitious target to end extreme poverty by 2030. The Guardian global development team have been reporting on the process. How have readers engaged in the debate? How can the media promote participation? Maeve Shearlaw will introduce the Guardian’s coverage and be available for a short Q&A.
Maeve Shearlaw is the community coordinator for Guardian Global Development, supporting the online community to engage in debate and discussion on the site and across social media. Follow her on twitter @maeveshearlaw.
