In its 75th Anniversary Year, the UN and its Member Governments have decided to engage “We the Peoples of these United Nations….” in a global conversation to decide what kind of future we want? – and what kind of UN system is needed to deliver such a world? To launch the year, UNA Harpenden is teaming up with Peace Child International to present an innovative way of starting such a conversation with a Concert of words and music at the High Street Methodist Church on Sunday 26th January at 4.00pm. Peace Child is a musical play with songs by Cat Stevens and his brother, David – that tells the story of how children bring peace and sustainable happiness to all the peoples of the world in their lifetimes. Our Concert will draws on songs from the musical, inter-mingled with readings and a dialogue between local school children and older UNA members about the future of the UN.
Sir Richard Jolly, former Deputy Director of UNICEF, will take part in the discussion on the future of the United Nations.
