Just got this notice from the Better World Campaign:
Today, at 11:30 a.m. EST, Secretary-General Kofi Annan will deliver his last major speech as leader of the United Nations. The speech will explore issues of global governance and the role of the United States in international affairs. Click here to watch the webcast from the Truman Presidential Library or visit www.betterworldcampaign.org to read the transcript. Afterwards, you can share your thoughts on the speech by joining in an online forum hosted by The People Speak, a multi-media discussion series on international issues.
The People Speak is an online space for people
to "explore and discuss global challenges and opportunities and the
value of international cooperation." It’s great to see the growth of these electronic forums for people around the world to gather and discuss important political issues. I’d love to see virtual environments like Second Life bring together people for more immersive interchanges on occasions like this.
UPDATE 1PM: Read the full text of the SG’s speech here.
