STAND UP EVENTS ORGANIZED BY MEMBERS OF UCP-SARnet
UN MILLENNIUM CAMPAIGN
STAND UP AGAINST POVERTY EVENTSFor those of you in Arizona, please mark your calendars for the upcoming 2011 STAND UP event at Arizona State University.
Monday, November 7, 2011
10 AM to 2 PM
At the ASU-Tempe Campus
Memorial Union Stage Area
The purpose of STAND UP events is to increase awareness about the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and motivate involvement in eradicating poverty around the world. Last year, when UCP-SARnet began involvement in the STAND UP Campaign, the events were especially meaningful as on September 20-22 there was a plenary summit of UN devoted to MDGs. It is our hopes to organize STAND UP events annually in all countries where UCP-SARnet has members. Full realization of MDGs till the year 2015 will require citizens involvement and collaboration between governments, universities and community organizations worldwide .
Answering a call by the UN Millenium Campaign UCP-SARnet has organized a few STAND UP AGAINST POVERTY events in collaboration with the Arizona State University (USA), SIAS International University (China), Youth Alliance, United Planet, and NAYD (Gambia & Cameroon) and AASRA (India).
