  • Millennium Development Goals Report 2015

    Millennium Development Goals 2015 Report

    The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have produced the most successful anti-poverty movement in history and will serve as the jumping-off point for the new sustainable development agenda to be adopted this year, according to the final MDG report launched today by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

    As these MDGs will be followed by the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it is important that lessons from the past are learned.

    What is Africa Day?

    Africa Day, designated by the African Union as an annual celebration of the continent’s unity, falls on 25th May each year.  Celebrations to mark the day occur across the globe: in some African states, it is a designated national holiday, while in diverse cities – such as New York, London and Washington – academic gatherings and cultural showcases mark the day.

    This year, in Ireland, we are celebrating the day on Sunday, May 24th at Farmleigh, Dublin.
