The international community and millions of citizens are helping to shape development priorities for the post 2015 period, but what’s the best way to finance long-term development?

Are current models of aid sufficient or should we introduce new ways of private financing? Can we afford sustainable development at all?

Development expert Simon Zadek will answer these and other questions during his Kapuscinski Development Lecture in Helsinki.

You can watch the lecture live on Tuesday 26 February at 2:00 p.m. CET/ 1:00 p.m. GMT (see times around the world). Join the discussion on Twitter (@kapulectures), ask your questions and share your comments using #kdl.

Simon Zadek is a leading expert on financing for sustainable development, and is currently co-director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Inquiry into Design Options for a Sustainable Financial System.

The lecture is part of the Kapuscinski development lecture series organized across the European Union by the European Commission, UNDP and partner universities. The lecture with Simon Zadek is organized in cooperation with the University of Helsinki.
