We are at a moment of environmental and cultural reckoning – say the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), in their invitation to a special event on 3 December.
“AOSIS embodies the dialectic of this reckoning. But more than that, our grouping proudly reflects the agency of a people and the epitome of resilience.
This event, commemorating the 30th Anniversary of AOSIS, aims to celebrate SIDS, our culture, our people, and our contribution to advancing a global agenda that looks to a regenerative and synergistic development for planet and for people.”
The event begins at 18:00 Eastern Standard Time (23:00 UTC) and is open to all: register here to attend.
The agenda includes:
Video Messages from the UN Secretary General, Member States and partners to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of AOSIS
Hon. Mia Amor Mottley,
Prime Minister of Barbados
