When U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named the 27 members of the High-Level Panel tasked with making recommendations for a post-2015 global development agenda, he charged the panelists to embark on an open and collaborative process not just with each other but with the people of the world. We engaged in hundreds of formal and informal consultations with members of the public, civil-society leaders, activists, young people, women, people with disabilities, businesses, and international organizations.

In that spirit, I held a Twitter “town hall” on April 8, 2013, to answer questions about the High-Level Panel process and priorities for the post-2015 world. This Storify summary presents the Twitter town hall in its entirety.

John Podesta is Chair of the Center for American Progress.
