CRY UK is delighted to announce the
‘2014 series’ of walks with Nick Robins through the history of the
East India Company - tracing its London legacy and telling its
extraordinary story of boom and bust, trade and conquest.
now as we have limited seats and invite your friends to join too!
Registration fees will be given to CRY UK as donations. So when you
walk, you ensure progress in the lives of the underprivileged
children in India.
Here is what Nick has to say about the
walk - 'The Company had profound impacts at home, not least its own
stock market bubble and bail-out. It resulted in the conquest of
India, the Boston Tea Party in the Americas and the opium wars with
China. We'll visit the Company's main sites in London, and see how
politicians, painters, playwrights and poets reacted to the greatest
corporation in the world.'

It is with deep sadness that I heard of the passing of Tania Valerie Raguz.
Many of us will have worked with her at United Nations meetings over the past ten years when she was the First Secretary of the Mission of Croatia to the UN.
Tania Valerie Raguz was on the Bureau for Rio+20 and a Vice-Chair Of the Bureau of the seventeenth session of the Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) and most recently she had joined the world of NGOs working as the Public Affairs Advisor for the World Animal Protection previously know as World Society for the Protection of Animals. WAP had been very active around Rio+20 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and she helped their work particularly around the SDGs.
Tania played her role in helping to frame the agenda that we are all committed to delivering on. CSD17 was one of the more successful CSD and without Rio+20 there would be no Sustainable Development Goals.

As I write this blog Committee 2
is discussing whether the annual resolution on Agenda 21, Johannesburg Plan of
Action and Rio+20 should be scrapped. The resolution has been extremely
important in the last few years for the discussion of subjects such as the High
Level Political Forum and the Technology Facilitation Mechanism, the regional
dimension of sustainable development and Sustainable Consumption and
Production. Since last year, some developed countries started to challenge the
very existence of the resolution. Their argument is that it is no longer needed
because the 2030 Agenda should cover all aspects of the three previous
Although the 2030 Agenda does cover many of the aspects of Agenda 21,
Johannesburg Plan of Action and Rio+20 it does not cover all and reduces the
space YET AGAIN for debate and discussion on sustainable development. In
response to the concerns expressed by developed countries, G77 proposed this
year to shift the focus of the resolution to SCP.…
