The Participate Ground level panels created a space for people living in poverty and marginalisation to deliberate what is needed from the post-2015 global policy process. these panels gave a unique insight into how development is experienced, what needs to change, and how change must happen if it is to be sustainable. the Ground level panels took place in Egypt, Brazil, Uganda and India. each panel comprised a group of 10-14 people with diverse and intersecting identities including urban slum dwellers; disabled people; sexual minorities; people living in conflict and natural disaster-affected areas; people living in geographically isolated communities; nomadic and indigenous people; older people; internally displaced people; and young people.
