The Elders’ 2022 Annual Review is now available to download. It highlights our activities and achievements from the past year including: the visit by Ban Ki-moon and Juan Manuel Santos to meet President Zelenskyy in Kyiv; Mary Robinson’s engagement on climate justice with youth activists, grassroots communities and political leaders in Africa; public and private discussions with members of the UN Security Council on global crises; and a celebration of the organisation’s 15th anniversary in Cape Town, South Africa.
In the words of Mary Robinson, Chair of The Elders:
“The force of Madiba’s mandate resonated with even greater power in 2022 as the world struggled with a plethora of existential threats. From Russia’s savage war on Ukraine to the continuing toll exacted by COVID-19, the floods, droughts and ferocious fires exacerbated by the climate crisis and the breakdown in diplomacy around nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, the need for ethical, bold and compassionate leadership has never been greater.”
