On September 22 and 23, 2015, CoC team member Aldo Caliari will be in Panama City (Panama) to attend a Latin America and Caribbean regional consultation convened by the UN Independent Expert on Human Rights and International Solidarity, Ms. Virginia Dandan. The consultation aims to gather participants’ insights, drawn from their own knowledge and experiences, relevant to the proposed draft declaration on the right to international solidarity. Caliari’s intervention will address structural dimensions of the realization of the right to international solidarity.

On September 24 through 27, he will be in New York to participate of activities surrounding the UN Summit that will approve the “2030 Agenda,” including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). On September 28th, he will be a panelist at a side-event organized by the Leading Group on Innovative Financing for Development: “Innovative financing: showcasing solutions to implement the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.” He will also speak at a reflection day organized by CIDSE to analyze the outcomes of recent UN conferences in the light of the teachings of the Pope’s recent Encyclical, Laudato Si.
