As the dangers of climate change increasingly becomes the hot topic of the day, citizens need to know what they can do about escalating dangers to the environment. For this reason, representatives of public interest groups from around the world will gather at the United Nations this September to address the topic at an upcoming conference entitled “Climate Change: How It Impacts Us All.” Organized by the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) in partnership with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), the Conference is the premier NGO event held at the United Nations each year.

In conjunction with this conference, a series of television profiles will air under the Light Millennium TV Series on Queens Public Television with key figures from the UN staff and local members of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working with the UN, discussing how climate change affects every individual and what citizens can do about the problem. The series is titled “LMTV/UN-NGO Profiles.”

The first of this season’s series of LMTV interviews features chairperson of the conference Richard Jordan and 25-year veteran of UN service Juan Carlos Brandt, chief of the Department of Public Information/NGO section.
Small steps that people can take to make a big differenced are pointed out on the program by Brandt. The former spokesperson for United Nations Secretary-Generals recommends that adults can serve as models for children in actions like use of the right light bulbs, walking rather than driving cars, and reduced use of water. “We need to make sure that our children and children’s children can see glaciers, butterflies and animals in natural settings,” says Brandt. “In order to do that, everyone has to make changes in their daily life to preserve the environment.” Brandt describes his philosophy of life in the program: “If you think of life as a process of always adding and always giving, never subtracting, you realize that you have done the most important thing, you have made a difference.”

Conference chair Jordan, a UN NGO representative for the “International Council for Caring Communities,” adds that viewers can get active by joining a local non-governmental organization to impact others in the community. In the program, Jordan describes his philosophy of life as based on the metaphor of a European soccer field with the beauty of an always-moving ball: “Move the ball forward; the UN is about always moving agenda forward and making an impact in people’s lives.”

The 60th Annual NGO/DPI Conference on climate change will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City on September 5-7, 2007.

The UN-NGO Profiles series was launched by the Light Millennium TV Series at Queens Public TV in July 2006 with the aim to disseminate information about United Nations’ activities to local communities, to create a bridge between viewers of Queens Public TV and crucial issues, as well as to profile leading representatives of NGOs. The intention is to lead to more awareness and partnerships between UN associated and non-associated organizations and the private sector. The Light Millennium organization associated with the Department of Public Information of the United Nations effective on December 12, 2005.

The host of the LMTV/UNNGO Profiles, Dr. Judy Kuriansky is a clinical psychologist at Columbia University Teachers College, and a representative to United Nations for two international NGOs: the International Association of Applied Psychology and the World Council of Psychotherapy.

The program is produced and edited by Bircan Ünver for the Light Millennium TV Series (monthly) at Queens Public Television. The crew for LMTV/UN NGO Profiles # 7 are: Studio Director: Garo Alexanian; Camera: Bircan Ünver and Mel Berkowitz. Special thanks to Fran Tobias, QPTV.
