UN in your language

A belated Happy 2014 to all

Shooting Film-6feb

At UNRIC we started the year by looking into our communication priorities for this year and two subjects stand out: Climate Change and Food with the Secretary-General’s Zero Hunger Challenge initiative.  In the weeks and months to come we will be working on different ideas aiming to put Climate Change back on the front burner, both of policy makers and the general public. Any ideas are welcome.
 
Amongst the projects we are working on at the moment, I would like to point out the Portuguese Forum of Civil Society Networks in Portugal. This ambitious initiative was proposed by UNRIC’s Portuguese Communication Officer, Julia Alhinho. A much needed idea to bring together NGOs who are working on the same subjects but not necessarily together, and to stimulate the public debate on the Post-2015 Global Development Agenda? This event will take place on February 20th and 21th in Lisbon University - ISCTE.
 
2014 also marks the Tenth anniversary of the creation of UNRIC and looking back at what we have achieved, we thought it apt to give ourselves a slogan which is: UNRIC@10  Ten Years of Creativity.
 
Speaking about creativity, UNRIC has joined forces with the European Commission and has launched a video competition asking people to say how Europe has changed their lives. This competition is open to all creative who believe in Europe.
 
Watch this space for more news on our plans to be even more creative in 2014.
