Stand Up Take Action

Friday October 16, we are organizing a walk in downtown Montreal to raise awareness about the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.

In the last 2 years, the Art of Living Foundation has been the single largest contributor to the success of the UN's STAND UP TAKE ACTION campaign, by mobilizing 17 million people worldwide. This year's walk is one of 9 events being hosted by Art of Living across Canada. We are demanding that world leaders keep the promises they made in the year 2000 to achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. Last year, more than 116 million people - nearly two percent of the world population - participated in "Stand Up, Take Action, End Poverty Now," breaking the Guinness World Record for the largest mobilization of human beings in recorded history.
