With 2013 drawing to a close, I would like to thank everyone who has shown support for Green Cross International, and the work we and our global network have been undertaking, during this year, which has marked the organisation’s 20th anniversary.
By reaching this important milestone, Green Cross has proven how “sustainable” it is as an organisation, one that is dedicated to advancing humanity through taking action on the interconnected challenges of environmental degradation, security and poverty.
To the several thousand people who joined in our September 20th anniversary celebrations, either in person in Geneva, or via webcast, we thank you and look forward to working together in 2014
I would like to mention that 2014 also marks the 20th anniversary of several of our national chapters, including Green Cross Switzerland, Green Cross Japan, Green Cross Russia and Global Green USA. We are looking forward to celebrating these milestones and hailing the efforts of our global partners to make a difference for humanity.
Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a joyful festive season break and best of luck for a healthy and happy 2014.
