On Sustainable Development

9 September 2011

UN Secretary General in a speech given at the University of Sydney:

On 31 October (2011), the seven billionth child is going to be born. I’m not sure whether we have to celebrate it or be concerned. For that child, and for all of us, we must keep working to fight poverty, create decent jobs and provide dignified life, while preserving the world that sustains us.
