Our world is starved for hope. Whether we look back at 2010 or ahead to 2011, many of us do not look forward to reading the newspaper or watching television, with so much turmoil on all levels.
The UN is a place where hope finds a home in the persistent articulation of agreements and promises that must be translated into on-the-ground action. This was abundantly clear at the MDG Summit which took stock of what has been achieved so far, while struggling with what remains to done by 2015.
This Newsletter invites us to consider the reality of complex, interwoven issues. Once again we welcome the voice of students. We wish you renewed hope, and a new year marked by deeds that match our words!
