The Anglican Communion Representative to the United Nations works in Geneva and New York to bring Anglican voices to the global stage. The role is vital in building strong relationships so that work at the grass roots is more effective.
The aim is to bring Anglican expertise and perspectives from across the Communion to meetings at various levels at the United Nations.
One aspect of the team’s work is promoting a better understanding of the workings of UN within the Communion – and a better understanding of the complexities of the Anglican Communion at the UN. The vision is to work with UN agencies, partner agencies such as Anglican Mission agencies and other faith-based organisation to reach the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
