Dear Colleagues,

It is encouraging to see the great energy and the many activities on the SDGs and the Agenda 2030. This UN Agenda is not a far-fetched idea which only exists on paper. Many different actors are working on the great transformation – from women’s organisations to scientists and corporate actors. The involvement of many active young people is even more refreshing. This is an agenda of the people.

Dear Colleagues,                                        

 
GCAP wishes you peace and hope for 2017!
 
What the year 2017 will be? After what happened in 2016, there is a lot of fear. In 2016 we were shocked by the killings of Berta Cáceres in Honduras in March and of Jo Cox in the UK in June. Many of us knew this two wonderful women fighting for justice and rights

Nobel Peace Prize

The 2017 Nobel Prize has been awarded to Juan Manuel Santos.

For GCAP this is a relevant choice.  We consider commitment for peace and justice as fundamental and inseparable. Fighting poverty and inequalities means to be engaged in a non-violent struggle, looking stubbornly for the dialogue with ‘the other’ rather than for his death.

Every reconciliation process, no matter how difficult, tiring and imperfect, has to be warmly welcomed and supported. 

GCAP looks with concern to the result of the Referendum in Colombia, and hopes that peace progress wouldn’t be harmed.  Durable justice can be built only through dialogue, meeting and walking together.
