the cities of tomorrow.The Call for Action will spur governments and international organizations to respond and address cooperatively the global challenges through joint action and shared commitments. It will be based on the contributions of all participants as an engagement of all levels of society – government, business and civil society – to rebalance the relationship among people, our planet, and our food.

EXPO 2015. Each signatory will outline voluntary commitments and suggestions for implementing actions against specific targets and timelines.

Your proposal looks very interesting... my only suggestion is that you may want to fix the formatting of this. It looks like you cut and pasted it and it kept it's original formatting.
I've changed the formatting. But now, the system saved it as '2014 Proposals Submitted After November 1 - Waitlist' even if was already accepted.
Yes, that's the default category. If you were already accepted, then I will put you back into the correct category.
