Civil society calls for sustainable development

64th Annual UN Department of Public Information NGO Conference

Governments around the world have been urged to step up their efforts to implement policies which promote sustainable development.

On Monday, over 2000 civil society representatives adopted a declaration at a United Nations conference in Bonn, Germany, calling for economic, environmental and industrial policies which not only promote development but also guarantee the security of future generations.

Kiyo Akasaka is the UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information.

"Those NGO representatives are very influential people in their own countries. They can impress upon their opinion leaders and policy makers and government officials about the importance of the work to be done on sustainable development, how you can make your cities and societies better."
