A sustainable future requires a new, inclusive and green economic model. This will require coordinated action to achieve increases in pay and purchasing power for all. Social protection which safeguards a decent standard of living must be expanded, and we will continue our campaigns for a more inclusive global economy.

This means we must continue to protect but also seek to expand democratic space and continue to campaign for disarmament so that the money that goes for arms can be used instead for social protection and inclusive growth and development. Countries of specific concern will also be highlighted under this agenda item.
