The place where Humanity’s stories of real people and events continue to be told together with Environmental concerns around the world. 

In the 21st Century and new Millennium, Nations great and small must – as never before – intently focus on the full spectrum of Humanitarian and Environmental concerns that affect every facet of life globally.    

 

Although the world has become smaller, more technologically advanced and interconnected, bigger and unprecedented challenges  are constant reminders that our world must be "secured, improved and sustained"  far into the future for all of Humanity including our planetary environment.

Regarding our world and the 

much needed 

WORK TO BE DONE,

“Partnerships” 

 

are . . .

“The Way to the Future!”

"Today, we honour the memory of the millions of people of African descent who suffered under the brutal system of slavery and the transatlantic slave trade.

This trade created and sustained a global system of exploitation that existed for more than 400 years, devastating families, communities and economies.

We remember with humility the resilience of those who endured the atrocities committed by slave traders and owners, condoned by slavery’s beneficiaries . . ."

UN Secretary-General António Guterres   

Expressed Deepest Condolences

February 22, 2021

The Italian Ambassador to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), a World Food Programme (WFP) staff member, together with an Italian embassy official, were killed on Monday during an attack on a UN convoy in the east of the country, the agency has said.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres, expressed his deepest condolences to the families of the deceased, as well as to the Governments of Italy and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in a statement issued later on Monday. 

"He further expresses his full solidarity with the WFP colleagues and

the entire United Nations team in the country.  Mr. Guterres called

on the Government of the DRC "to investigate swiftly this

heinous targeting of a United Nations joint field mission

and to bring the perpetrators to justice."  He made it

clear that the UN would continue to support the

Government and people, "in their efforts to bring

about peace and stability in the east of the country."
