Global Day of Action #ACT4SDGS

Dear Colleagues,

We the People - take Action for SDGs!

in

Dear Colleagues,
 
On September 25th 2015 the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all members states of the United Nations (UN). We are organizing a global action for the two year anniversary on the 25th September 2017 under the slogan "We the People - take Action for SDGs!".

Many governments publicly congratulate themselves on the progress on the SDGs. But accountability mechanism are weak and the overall implementation has been slow, uneven and non-inclusive. A clear picture of progress of individual countries and the international community can only be achieved if governments work with citizens and civil society on national implementation plans.

Dear Colleagues,                                        

 
GCAP wishes you peace and hope for 2017!
 
What the year 2017 will be? After what happened in 2016, there is a lot of fear. In 2016 we were shocked by the killings of Berta Cáceres in Honduras in March and of Jo Cox in the UK in June. Many of us knew this two wonderful women fighting for justice and rights

Nobel Peace Prize

The 2017 Nobel Prize has been awarded to Juan Manuel Santos.

For GCAP this is a relevant choice.  We consider commitment for peace and justice as fundamental and inseparable. Fighting poverty and inequalities means to be engaged in a non-violent struggle, looking stubbornly for the dialogue with ‘the other’ rather than for his death.

Every reconciliation process, no matter how difficult, tiring and imperfect, has to be warmly welcomed and supported. 

GCAP looks with concern to the result of the Referendum in Colombia, and hopes that peace progress wouldn’t be harmed.  Durable justice can be built only through dialogue, meeting and walking together.
