UN75 People's Declaration and Plan for global Action

On the occasion of a solemn handover ceremony to the President of the General Assembly of the United Nations, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, on 14 May, UN 2020 and Together First published the UN75 People's Declaration, with the Plan for global Action, "Humanity at a Crossroads: Global Solutions to Global Challenges", which has been elaborated over the past months.

The 11-page PDF document can be found on the UN General Assembly website, among others. An unofficial German translation can be found HERE.

"At a time when change is taking place at a pace and on a scale unprecedented in history, the foundations can and must be laid for a better way for humanity. This year has the potential to serve as a decisive turning point in our journey towards a world of shared prosperity based on the commitments made. A global health crisis has shaken the foundations of the world order. No community is immune and we can no longer behave as if our current institutions were sufficient to secure our future. Like the United Nations, which rose from the ashes of the Second World War, our response to this challenge has the potential to change the world order to reflect a new reality".

What is at stake is nothing less than an active and assured voice and participation in future world political developments within the framework of the United Nations. It is worth studying the document in peace and quiet and signing HERE.
