United Nations Human Rights meeting to be addressed by Visiting Research Fellow 16.11.17 – UPDATED: 26.11.17

UPDATE: 26.11.17

Here is a video of my statements from the ‘recognition’ and ‘development’ sessions, where I argue for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)-recognition of the activities of Supplementary Schools (grassroots community education enterprises) and the SDG-reporting on the social and economic outputs of the Grassroots Organisations.

My statements echo the Civil Society Recommendations for the Outcomes Document of the Regional Meeting of Europe, North America, and Central Asia on the International Decade for People of African Descent to which I contributed, here.

The SDG-mapped community matrix that I refer to and suggest is:
