The Power of Nations: The Millennium Goals Today

The United Nations Association of Greater Boston is sponsoring a series of events in honor of United Nations Day. Boston University’s student ambassadors of the UNAGB are proud to present a talk about the United Nations Millennium Goals by Professor Charles Dunbar, a former State Department Foreign Service Officer as well as a United Nations Secretary General and Professor Henrick Selin, who conducts research and teaches about politics in sustainable development. After a brief introduction of the goals and what we can do to achieve them, the panel will be open to questions through an interactive discussion between the audience and speakers. All are welcome and encouraged to participate! The hope is that everyone will be able to leave with a better understanding of what the goals are as well as what they can do to help impact at least one: end poverty and hunger, universal education, gender equality, child health, maternal health, combat HIV/AIDS, environmental sustainability and global partnership.
