Citizens from every continent will expect bold and decisive action from World leaders when they meet in September to review the implementation of the Millennium Summit held five years ago. “We live in a critical time” said Roberto Bissio, Coordinator of Social Watch “with very real threats to humanity and to the environment on which we all depend. Business as usual is no longer an option. We need an ambitious strategy to secure the future of the world for generations to come.” Bissio was launching the Social Watch “Benchmark for the 5-year Review of the Millennium Declaration” for the September meeting, containing a set of expectations established through a process of consultation with its active citizens’ coalitions from all parts of the world.
