UNANIMA International: Nurturing Hope One Step at a Time

Return to news

In its recent December newsletter, the NGO UNANIMA International presents some elements that nourish hope in regard to making a difference in the lives of people in need.

In addition to the Director General’s reflections, we take a look at activities relative to the UN. In reference to the 26th annual UN Climate Change Conference of Parties (COP26) held in Glascow, Scotland, it is noted that there are  enormous challenges ahead. Although the situation seems hopeless, the organization highlights some positive developments, especially adding fossil fuels into the Glasgow Climate Pact. 

There are also updates regarding several committees, including the Social Development and Migration Committee. We also highlight UNANIMA’s recent membership in the Working Group on Girls. This group has produced a climate change toolkit and has been working in partnership with UN Women (The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women) on coordinating conversation circles with girls on the topic of climate change.

We also learn that the resolution on homelessness in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic was approved by the 3rd Committee of the UN General Assembly.

Several other news items related to the various activities and follow-ups of the NGO are presented in this newsletter along with a list of interesting resources placed at the end of the newsletter. To learn more, consult this publication which is available in English, Español, French and Portuguese.
