Time for Global Action 2015

UN Secretary-General welcomes the Action 2015 Campaign with a group of 15-year olds. The campaign, by civil society, coincides with the UN’s campaign, “2015:Time for Global Action.” The 15-year olds are the same age as the landmark Millennium Development Goals that have helped lift millions from poverty. In 2015, the world has an opportunity to further advance action to eliminate poverty and to tackle climate change.
