TRT 57:00

The historic Millennium Forum, convened by the United Nations Secretary General at the General Assembly Hall in May 2000, legitimately represented organized humanity. The delegates produced a Declaration and Agenda for Action that proposes an inclusive, fair, and actionable alternative to the current form of economic globalization. This plan shows how to restore the environment, while bringing about a world of peace and plenty for all.

I. Transforming the United Nations
Four authorities picture a world system that works for all. They explain how to find U.N. agencies, guarantee every person food, shelter, health care, education, and employment, and institute a comprehensive peace-sustain U.N. system to reduce armed conflict. (14:00)

II. The Other Superpower Convenes
In May 2000 at the United Nations, civil society delegates from around the globe gathered to represent humankind. They produced an Agenda for Action recommending workable ways that governments, the U.N., and civic organizations cat together fulfill the commitments all states have made to meet the needs of their populations and restore the biosphere. Folk music and dance performances reflected the planet’s many cultures. (12:00)

To democratize the U.N., the delegates recommended establishing a Global Civil Society Forum to define a People’ Agenda and focalize world attention on implementing it. (12:00) Continue reading…
