Millennial Forum

Last May a group of 1350 people representing various non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and society as a whole met for a week at the United Nations in New York at a “We The People Millennium Forum” to convey their views on the state of the world and what might be done to improve it to the Heads of States who were to hold a meeting at the UN in September at Special Millennium General Assembly.

Under six broad categories — peace, globalization, poverty, pollution, human rights, reforming the UN — the forum made detailed recommendations to the UN, to Governments, and to society as a whole.

This forum was almost totally ignored by the media. Mel Watkins, past president of Science for Peace attended the forum and prepared a report which was first published in Straight Goods, an on-line news source.

To view the report of the Millennium Forum, see www.un.org/millennium.
