Newsletter from Augustinians International: The Augustinian Entity at the United Nations

2015 is a landmark for the United Nations for various reasons.  This year marks the seventieth anniversary of its founding.

More important, the community of nations would, by September this year, adopt another
fifteen year timeline development agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), that would replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted fifteen years ago.

The process of selecting these transformative goals, hoped to “free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet for present and future generations,” pervades all discussions and events at the UN and its associated agencies and organizations these days.

Augustinians International has been deeply involved in this process and is glad to present in this edition of its newsletter (below) highlights of the process.  Enjoy the reading!
