Today we delivered our statement to the United Nations 5th Committee on UN Common System Issues.

We must recognise the time for changes in the global systems is now. If the world is to truly find love, peace and prosperity, the structures that exist to create global stability must be rebuilt on the principles of fairness and the inclusion of all nations. #UNGA

What on earth! “Europe is a garden, and the rest of the world a jungle??” How is it that these kinds of dinosaurs are in these kinds of leadership positions? Filling the heads aspiring diplomats with such racist and supremist humbug. https://t.co/efRPgtzvNR

Good luck Mr Türk, next to the SG’s role probably the second most impossible job in the world.

Statement delivered at the opening of the UNFSU XXX Council meeting on UN Day, 24 October 2022.

"This UN Day remarks the 77th year of the existence of the United Nations. This year's theme is about hope and global unity. At UNFSU, our motto since we took office in 2019 has been ...“Stronger Together”, a motto compatible with the notion of global unity towards a world of peace and prosperity for all.

We must unite in the fight against toxic work environments to prevent our staff from developing mental health problems, we must demand better access to help for those that are already suffering, and we must do all we can to reduce stigma to reduce the number of people who are suffering in silence because they are afraid to speak up.

We must develop a zero tolerance to toxicity in our work environments so that we can all become, Stronger Together."
