Gray Panthers Member Frances Zainoeddin's Address to 2016 HLPF Roundtable

“From inspiration to action:  multi-stakeholder engagement for implementation”

15 July 2016

My name is Frances Zainoeddin, representing the Stakeholder Group on Ageing.

Let me first express our thanks to Ambassador Kamau for his role in the Sustainable Development Goals.  At the first session last Monday, on the topic “Where do we stand at year one?” and also today, he reminded us that the 2030 Agenda is fundamentally about a change in mindset in our approach to eradicating poverty, in our approach to people, the planet, prosperity, peace and partnership.  Regrettably, changing a mindset is probably more difficult getting consensus at the United Nations.
