Sustainable development is the architecture of peace, and the Global Goals are its blueprint. On September 17, ICV and the Permanent Secretariat of the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates will convene the builders: Nobel Peace Laureates, Philanthropists, Heads of State and Government, Academia, CEOs, NGOs and Youth.

 
Over the next several decades, the world’s wealthiest are expected to transfer more than $30 trillion to their children and grandchildren.

The next generation will inherit unprecedented wealth and a badly damaged planet.

More than ever, institutional investors are redefining their investment strategies to be more impact-oriented.

More than ever, philanthropists who care for our future are allocating money to nonprofits and for-profits focused on social impact and social good.

And, more than ever, peace is underfunded while the world is over-armed.

As the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) come into focus for multiple stakeholders, peace is being redefined as not just a meaning of non-violence or inner serenity, but a broader connectedness with all life.

A universal culture of peace can exist.

This historic event will educate and inspire all ages and touch the hearts of those who by virtue and wealth can capitalize organizations focused on peace building, peace keeping and youth empowerment.

The Global Goals for Sustainable Development

In September 2015, all 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted a plan for achieving a better future for all – laying out a path over the next 15 years to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet. At the heart of “Agenda 2030” are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which clearly define the world we want – applying to all nations and leaving no one behind.

The new Global Goals result from a process that has been more inclusive than ever, with Governments involving business, civil society and citizens from the outset.

Responsible business and investment – rooted in universal principles – will be essential to achieving transformational change through the Global Goals. For companies, successful implementation will strengthen the enabling environment for doing business and building markets around the world.

We are all in agreement on where the world needs to go. Fulfilling these ambitions will take an unprecedented effort by all.

 


 
 
 


 

The International Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire.

The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

The Current Situation in Developing Countries, A Vision for a Better Educated World

In its pursuit for Global positive changes, the United Nations highlights the Importance of Education. My aim is the talk about why it matters, how necessary it is for the developing world to have access to better education systems and share my own life story.

  • Abdourrachid Abdoussamad Sow is a student at Endicott College, a small, seaside private college with a strong community and a proven experiential learning model. State-of-the-art academic facilities partner with private beaches and distinctive residential options to create a unique and fulfilling college environment for our students. Dedicated faculty and staff guide students in their growth and learning, creating experienced and confident graduates. Abdourrachid (“Ab”) is a special young man who, up until January, was living in West Africa. As a child in Ivory Coast, Ab and his family watched as their home was destroyed by rebels one night as they fled on foot to Mali, where they found refuge in a friend’s chicken coop. Before long, they were targeted for the language they spoke and Ab and his brothers faced beatings in school. The family returned to Ivory Coast for safety. Despite a break in his schooling and without enough money to afford to complete his education, Ab turned to the U.S. Embassy, which referred him to the library. There, Ab taught himself English and studied for his diploma. On the day that he was to take his exam, he was hit by an automobile and left for dead. Knowing his family could not afford the cost of a hospital visit, Ab found the strength in himself to walk four miles back home where his family dressed his wounds and helped him through a long recovery that delayed his education further. With the love, kindness and compassion of some special people, Ab is now living outside of Boston with the Magnant family and attending Endicott College on full scholarship. He completed his first semester and obtained a 3.94 GPA. With this accomplishment, Ab will live on campus next semester. His dream is to one day educate and build peace in his country and beyond.

 

A Journey of Inclusion

The Chaeli Campaign is a social justice foundation founded in August 2004 by 5 girls between the ages of 6 and 12 to raise R20 000 for Chaeli Mycroft’s motorised wheelchair. They accomplished their mission in just 7 weeks by selling cards with their artwork on them. What started as a campaign to mobilise their sister and friend has culminated in a fully-fledged social justice foundation that provides a holistic range of services to support differently-abled catalysts of change. The Chaeli Campaign advocates for policy change and system reform to grow more ability-focused and inclusive communities. This foundation is based in Cape Town, South Africa, but has a global footprint with founder, Chaeli Mycroft, recognised as a powerful human rights defender and ability activist.

“Women of Hope

 

Philanthropy

Abdourrachid Sow. “I was born in the Ivory Coast, West Africa, but fled war in 2002 to go to Mali when my family lost everything in a bombing, including our house. Upon arrival in Mali, my family suffered a lot to establish ourselves in the new country. Eight years later my mom and my three siblings, including my baby brother went back to the Ivory Coast to visit my grandmother when another political war started and my mom saw her father and her younger brother being handcuffed and killed before her eyes. Then her baby got sick and died because there was no available hospital nor medicine. After the war, she went back to Mali and did not want to return to the Ivory Coast, but my father had an accident, slipping on the floor and breaking his hip in three places. At the time, the new Ivorian President called out to all the citizens living abroad to come home and rebuild the country. He promised free education and healthcare, so since my father needed an operation costing more than $14,000, which we did not have, we returned to the country. However, the president did not keep his promises. Instead, he created an atmosphere of instability in the country. There was no free education, no free healthcare. By some miracle, over the years my father got better and can walk without crutches now. But he still has pain and needs medical attention. Not only did the president not keep his promises but he also refused to pay the military who fought the war for him and brought him to the presidency. Thus, since last year the military has started to make demands for their money and threatened to use coercion if he did not pay them. Since January 2017, there has been a lot of violence against the population and there have been many shootings between military factions causing many schools, companies, businesses, and markets to close. Right now there is so much violence, shootings, and food scarcity that my family can’t cope with the situation any longer. This is how both the 2002 and 2010 wars started in the Ivory Coast and they have lost so much that they are traumatized and afraid. They recently took refuge in Mali. Now that my family made it to Mali, they urgently need a place to stay and my 10-year old brother needs to start going to a good school. Since school will resume in early September and given that the education level in Mali is very inferior to that of the Ivory Coast, the only way to ensure that my brother can have a good education is to put him in a private school, which is expensive. At just 10 years old, Aboubacar is very smart and dedicated. Last year, within the first three weeks of the start of school, he was promoted from fifth to sixth grade and was second in his class in the first quarter. He took the junior high exam and aced it. He has been chosen for his high academic performance and tremendous public speaking skills to give the end-of-year speech at his school every year since he was seven years old. Aboubacar has a true passion for learning and a burning desire for leadership that needs to be cultivated. Therefore, it is very important for my family to live near a good school. Otherwise, my brother won’t have the opportunity to be educated and his talent, intelligence and kindness could be wasted. Right now they have a temporary place to stay at an acquaintance’s house but it’s just for a limited time and my family needs to find a place of their own. With regard to my family’s current situation, I am reaching out to all of you as human beings to help my family get a place to live and my brother a solid education. Thank you all for taking the time to read this and for supporting my cause.”
