Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the International Children's Peace Prize Winners Launch Remember2015
Date:9/21/2012

AMSTERDAM, September 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Archbishop Tutu together with the International Children's Peace Prize Winners and the Dutch foundation KidsRights announced the start of a new movement called Remember2015 (http://www.remember2015.com). This new movement reminds the world of its promise to children through the Millennium Development Goals set in 2000.

In 2000, leaders of 189 countries signed the Millennium Development Goals.  This document promised a better future for children by 2015.

Remember2015 is to recreate awareness and encourage all to get involved.  We need to place children's rights high on the agenda of world leaders. Until now progress on the Millennium Development Goals is not enough.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Asked for a reaction about this new movement during the ceremony of The Children's Peace Prize 2012 Archbishop Tutu said, "Fantastic, fantastic and I hope we always will remember the promises we made, because our world depends on it." The Archbishop continued that world leaders have seen what young people can do referring to changes recent years initiated by young people and warned "We better listen to them."

The Millennium Development Goals

The promise made in 2000:

  • The number of  children living in extreme poverty (living on less than 1.25 USD a day) will be halved in 2015.
  • All children will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling.
  • The number of young children dying will turned down to maximum 4 million a year.
  • (Remember2015 acknowledges that every child that dies is one too many)

Following The Millennium Development Goals Report 2012 by the United Nations:

  • 1 in 5 children in the developing world is underweight due to extreme poverty.
  • At least 61 million children worldwide do not go to primary school.
  • Over 7.6 million young children die every year.
  • In the last 12 years over 100 million children under the age of 5 died
