Building Forward Together: Ending Persistent Poverty, Respecting all People and our Planet

This year's theme followed on and deepened the different ideas and reflections raised last year on social and environmental justice. People who experience poverty were able to express very strongly that there is only one justice, and that it is both social and environmental.
These videos were prepared last year for the commemoration of the World Day for Overcoming Extreme Poverty in collaboration with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the NGO Committee for Social Development. They were broadcast on UN Web TV and on ATD Fourth World's YouTube channel. They are very interesting tools for working on how to build forward together.
