We live in a rapidly developing and increasingly interconnected world where change is the only constant. Unfortunately, change doesn’t benefit everyone equally. Globalization has led to a world filled with new possibilities, both positive and negative. While some populations thrive, others are failing, due to war, poverty and natural disasters. The problems are complex and varied, but one issue lies at the heart: disparity – disparity in income, rights, resources, opportunity and mobility. Whether these disparities are linked to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or economic class, the collective results can be seen in unsound economies, social unrest, and disenfranchised citizenries.

In September 2000, 189 countries recognized this and took a promising first step. Following the United Nations Millennium Summit Meeting, these nations developed a plan to address goals in eight areas: poverty and hunger, education, gender equality, child mortality, maternal health, eradication of disease, environmental sustainability, and economic development. Progress has been slow and uneven, but the commitment stands.

But we have fun too!
