UN Foundation – A New Year’s Letter: From Vision to Action

Friend –Happy New Year! Each January, I like to write a letter to friends and partners of the Foundation to reflect and look forward to what’s in store for the upcoming year.I hope you will take a moment to read my full 2016 letter here on our blog.2015 was a historic year for the United Nations and for global cooperation, from the Financing for Development action agenda to the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals to the landmark climate agreement.Each of these moments was a testament to the power of global cooperation in a time when the challenges we face — from swelling refugee populations to violent extremism to persistent inequality and a changing environment — defy borders and demand collaboration, challenges for which the UN is singularly and increasingly essential.
Read the letter
In 2015, we embraced a new future. In 2016, we must move from bold vision to meaningful action.This year, we will see many significant shifts in our landscape. UN Member States will select a new Secretary-General, U.S. citizens will elect a new President, and we all will begin the urgent task of implementing the global goals for sustainable development and the historic climate agreement reached in Paris. We are in a new era of development that increasingly understands the need to break down silos, find fresh approaches, and fully engage all sectors.Click here to read the rest of the letter — and get ready to help the UN build a better world in 2016.Thanks for everything you do to power this movement. All the best for a brilliant year!

Negotiators craft partial Syrian peace plan
Ministers from 20 countries agreed on a partial plan toward peace in Syria. Staffan de Mistura, the United Nations special envoy for Syria, will draw up a list of participants for a Jan. 1 start of negotiations. “I urge the participants to move beyond their differences so that they can push for a nationwide cease-fire,” says Ban Ki-moon, UN secretary-general. “After years of division, this is a rare moment of diplomatic opportunity to end the violence.” Yahoo/The Associated Press (11/14), Reuters (11/15), PassBlue (11/15)

No development without peace and justice

Friend –This week, world leaders at the United Nations will adopt a new plan for action for people and the planet: the Sustainable Development Goals. But first, as we celebrate the International Day of Peace, I’d like to tell you about a goal that’s very important to me: Promote just, peaceful, and inclusive societies with effective, accountable institutions.People everywhere deserve societies free from fear and violence where the rule of law, access to justice, and transparency thrive. These priorities make the other global goals possible: There can be no sustainable development without peace, and no peace without sustainable development. Learn more about the Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions goal:

Here’s what we need everyone to know:

It’s no coincidence that countries struggling to tackle health and development challenges are those in conflict or post-conflict situations. I’ll give you some examples:

  • People in states affected by conflict are 3 times more likely to suffer from hungerthan their peers.
  • In 2011, 28.5 million school-age children from conflict-affected countries had no access to education.
  • The average cost of civil war is equivalent to more than 30 years of GDP growthfor a medium-sized developing country.

Peace, justice, and sustainable development are all mutually reinforcing, which is why the new global goals represent an unprecedented opportunity for worldwide action. The result of a three-year-long, participatory process with buy-in from 193 UN Member States and their citizens, the goals provide a shared vision for progress — and accountability — as we work toward a safer and more sustainable world.

Will you tell everyone about our chance to take action for peace, justice, and strong institutions?Click here to forward this email to a friend.Click here to tweet.Click here to share on Facebook.

Thanks — we can build stronger societies, but the world needs to hear your voice now.

Subject: 70 years ago today
Date: June 26, 2015
Reply-To: “Kathy Calvin, United Nations Foundation” <mailings@unfoundation.org>

Dear friend,

Seventy years ago today, representatives from 50 nations gathered in San Francisco to sign the United Nations Charter – a historic moment for peace and progress in the world.

Help spread the word about the UN’s important work by sharing this special anniversary video.

Over the past seven decades, we’ve seen the enduring value of the UN as:

A forum for nations to exchange words instead of warheads;

  • A watchdog for human rights and a protector of peace;
  • A first responder to humanitarian crises, providing food, shelter, and medical aid;
  • A platform for collectively addressing global challenges from climate change to disease outbreaks; and
  • An expert on development.

Simply put: The UN is on the front lines of today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities, and its work is as important today as it was 70 years ago.

Each of us can play a role in supporting the UN’s transformative work.

This year, world leaders are working with the UN on agreements on climate change and our next global development agenda. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to set the path for a world where everyone has opportunity and dignity and no one is left behind.

The UN can’t achieve this future on its own. We need people like you to join with the UN in building the world we want.

Thanks for your support of the UN.

Kathy Calvin
President & CEO

310,000+ Join People’s Climate March in New York City,

Hundreds of Thousands Join Rallies Around the World

 NEW YORK — An official count conducted at the People’s Climate March in New York City showed that over 310,000 people participated in the largest climate rally in history–more than tripling pre-march estimates of 100,000. Around the world, hundreds of thousands more joined 2,646 events in 156 countries.

“We said it would take everyone to change everything — and everyone showed up,” said Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance.

Shattering expectations, this official attendee count makes the People’s Climate March New York City’s largest social demonstration in the last decade. Well above the 80,000 who attended the 2009 march at the Copenhagen climate talks, the 310,000 attendees at today’s demonstration have set world history just days before a UN Summit bringing world leaders together to discuss tangible action on climate change.

“People around the world are tired of waiting for our politicians to act,” said Payal Parekh, Global Managing Director for 350.org, one of the organizations coordinating the global day of events. “From the islands of the Pacific to the streets of New York City, we’re demanding action, not words. We’re showing what real leadership looks like.”

Marches around the world also exceeded expectations with more than 30,000 people taking to the streets in both London and Melbourne and over 25,000 in Paris. Thousands also marched in Delhi, Rio, Paris, Barcelona, Jakarta and beyond. In most places, the People’s Climate march was the largest demonstration on climate change to date.

In addition, at last count, 2,129,060 people around the world had also signed onto a petition calling for world leaders to take bold action at the UN Climate Summit this week.

“With hundreds of thousands marching in over 2,500 protests worldwide, this is by a long way the largest climate mobilization in history. It’s a wake up call to politicians that climate change is not a green issue anymore, it’s an everybody issue,” said Ricken Patel, the executive director of Avaaz, who delivered the petition to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at 1:00pm this afternoon on the march route.

Hi all,
A quick note to invite you to check out our Momentum for Change podcast. It’s twice-monthly, and profiles positive, transformative climate action stories from across the globe.
Our latest episode is an interview about energy-efficient brick producers in Peru. On a related note, you may also want to check out the brand-new UNFCCC newsroom site, which launched last week. It’s not your father’s UN site.
You can listen to all the podcast episodes on our website, on SoundCloud or subscribe in iTunes or via the podcast RSS feed. Thanks. DB.
