We need to join together globally to create a better world
The secretary-general asks leaders to work together toward positive change
Unity. That’s what António Guterres, secretary-general to the United Nations, is calling for this year, which is in line with Christian Children’s Fund of Canada’s mission to join with partners, children, families and communities to improve futures.
That global community is growing more important. “I am not issuing an appeal. I am issuing an alert — a red alert for our world,” said Guterres. “As we begin 2018, I call for unity. […] We can settle conflicts, overcome hatred and defend shared values. But we can only do that together,” he said.
This comes following a year of intensifying conflicts, global threats, climate change concerns and more.
“Narrow the gaps. Bridge the divides. Rebuild trust by bringing people together around common goals,” Guterres implored world leaders.
