Address to the East Africa Model United Nations  
Address to the East Africa Model United Nations
On behalf of Dr. Klaus Toepfer and the whole United Nations family, I am delighted to have this opportunity to welcome you to the United Nations in Nairobi. In a world that has become more interconnected through commerce and communication, the United Nations system is the only global political body for both dialogue and action. Nearly every country is represented in the United Nations, and each has the right to speak out on issues of peace and development, looking for common solutions to shared problems.

Address to the International Conference on The Age of Connectivity – Harnessing the Generations  

I wish to open my remarks by saying thank you to International Council for Caring Communities for calling this important conference. A century ago, we did not live as long as we do today because we did not live as well. We did not have the social, medical, and political means, let alone the basic human rights many of us - but by no means all - enjoy today. And the world was far tougher. It is wonderful that so many more of us can expect to live to a ripe old age now. Perhaps by the year 2050, and fifty years beyond, we may be able to take a longer life more for granted. Certainly we will have better technology.
