Afsane Bassir-Pour, the Director of UNRIC
, praised the enthusiasm with which Europeans joined the competition on the WeCanEndPoverty campaign last year.
To this end, the Foundation has sought the support of Carlos Jimenez Renjifo , Desk Officer in Spain for the United Nations Regional Information Centre ( UNRIC
), who warns about the need to seek joint solutions to this problem: "Already in 2012, the world's population has reached 7 billion inhabitants and it is estimated that within three decades it may reach around 9 billion.
The aim of this digital campaign is to raise awareness of poverty issues amongst European citizens, create a common project for all UN information centres and to tap into the extraordinary pool of creativity in Europe," said Afsane Bassir-Pour, Director of UNRIC
in launching the campaign.
