Citizen Ambassador 2010, Connor Parker, Australia
Connor Parker, 19, is an International Studies student living in Melbourne, Australia. Through his school-based involvement with NGOs such as World Vision, Connor has developed a keen interest in global issues and hopes to help create a world in which poverty does not exist.
Connor's video "I See Change" focused on the importance of global cooperation and commitment in achieving the Millennium Development Goals. He emphasized that change can only occur when we tackle global problems together, by putting our differences and personal interests aside for the greater good.
Connor hopes that his experience as a United Nations Citizen Ambassador will encourage public involvement in the global fight against poverty by showing that ordinary citizens are a critical part of the international process and a formidable force for change.
