In the Amazon region of Colombia, @UN colleagues & partners have set up pop-up #COVID19 vaccination clinics to help indigenous communities. We will continue helping safeguard the rights, health & safety of indigenous people, as we work to defeat the pandemic. https://t.co/BZicTqzu5z
Latest reports indicate that there has been a $5 trillion surge in the wealth of the world’s richest in the past year. I urge governments to consider a solidarity or wealth tax on those who have profited during the pandemic, to help ensure funds go where they are needed most.
60 years ago, Yuri Gagarin became the first person to orbit the Earth. As a child, this landmark event triggered in me not only an interest in physics, but also a long-standing conviction that the most complex challenges can be overcome with conviction and creativity.
Extremist movements represent the principal security threat in many countries. Dehumanization of communities, misinformation & hate speech are stoking the fires of violence. Wherever we see it, we must #FightRacism & all forms of hatred - without reservation or hesitation.
More countries are beginning to receive vaccine supplies, but most people in low- and middle-income nations are still waiting. Vaccine equity is a moral test of global solidarity. COVAX – the @UN-led initiative to ensure equitable access, must be funded and supported.
This World Health Workers Week, I salute all health heroes for their unwavering commitment amid #COVID19. The best way to honour them is ensuring they can do their job safely, giving them priority access to vaccines & getting them the support they need for their critical work. https://t.co/RwnwC4rDvB
Landmines, explosive remnants of war & improvised explosive devices represent the worst of humanity. But efforts to eradicate them reflect humanity at its best. My update to the @UN Security Council on the progress so far, and what remains to be done. https://t.co/H2aFcgteec https://t.co/HIS54D5FGy
For centuries, Roma have faced discrimination, rejection & marginalization all over the world & in all areas of life. On this International Roma Day, I renew the @UN's commitment to working together with Roma in strengthening the protection of their human rights & freedoms.
Paternalistic attitudes and a narrowing of civic space often deny young people a role in shaping their societies. We must listen and rebuild trust. And we need results - improvements in education, employment, gender equality and environmental protection. #Youth2030
The world needs to move beyond offering platitudes to young people. We need to meaningfully engage youth in matters that affect their future. The @UN #Youth2030 strategy is our commitment to strengthen our work with & for young people. https://t.co/9fs5P3RIT0 https://t.co/xacKRhahpF
Rwanda experienced one of the most painful chapters in modern human history, but its people have rebuilt from the ashes. The people of Rwanda have shown us the power of justice and reconciliation, and the possibility of progress. #Kwibuka https://t.co/3zKDw9mRGs
The vast majority of #COVD19 vaccine doses administered have been in a few wealthy countries or those producing vaccines. Such inequities are immoral and dangerous for our health, our economies & our societies. This #WorldHealthDay, let's commit to a healthy, equitable world. https://t.co/HPIV9qdxrq
The genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda remains in our collective conscience as among the most horrific events in recent human history. To prevent history from repeating, we must counter hate-driven movements & push for the full respect of all members of society. #Kwibuka https://t.co/P3h3pYuiHw
As the continent that has contributed least to the climate crisis, yet faces its most devastating impacts, Africa deserves the strongest possible support & solidarity. The @UN is committed to working with the people of Africa to chart a prosperous and sustainable future.
#COVID19 recovery can only be successful if it embraces ambitious #ClimateAction. Massive sums of money are being mobilized to revitalize economies. It is vital that these investments advance the transition to renewable energy, create green jobs & promote green infrastructures.
