UN Update May 2016

While history was being made at the United Nations with the signing of the Paris Agreement on climate in recent weeks, our NGO at the United Nations also made history. The IBVM General Leadership met in New York for discussions regarding our NGO and its collaboration with the United Nations. Both events coincided. While the United Nations prepared for the arrival of Heads of State and other dignitaries for the official signing, we found ourselves participants in the security measures, restrictions and blockades involved in such events. It was a unique experience of the United Nations for the members of our General Leadership who were visiting for the first time.    IBVM at the United Nations Update No 20. 05/16
