The United Nations in a Changing World, Senator Timothy Wirth at The City Club of Cleveland

CLEVELAND: Senator Timothy E. Wirth, president of the United Nations Foundation and Better World Fund, will speak about the role of the United Nations in a changing world at noon on Friday, December 1, 2006, at The City Club of Cleveland.

The United Nations Foundation and Better World Fund was established through a major financial commitment from R.E. Turner to support and strengthen the work of the United Nations.

Since their inception in 1998, Wirth has organized and led the formulation of the foundation’s mission and program priorities, which include the environment, women and population, children’s health and peace, security and human rights. The foundation also engages in extensive public advocacy, resource mobilization, and institutional strengthening efforts on behalf of the UN.

Senator Timothy E. Wirth

Wirth began his political career as a White House fellow under President Lyndon Johnson and was deputy assistant secretary for Education in the Nixon Administration. From 1975 to 1987, Wirth represented Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he concentrated his efforts in the areas of communications technology and budget policy. In 1986, he was elected to the U.S. Senate where he focused on environmental issues, especially global climate change and population stabilization.

Following two decades of elected politics, Wirth served in the U.S. Department of State as the first undersecretary for Global Affairs from 1993 to 1997. In this position he coordinated U.S. foreign policy in the areas of refugees, population, environment, science, human rights and narcotics.

Tickets for this City Club Friday Forum are $18 for members and $30 for non-members. Lunch is included. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance of the event. They can be purchased by calling The City Club at 216.621.0082 or visiting the website at www.cityclub.org.
