A couple of good pieces on Helen Clark recently. One on global challenges:
Helen Clark discusses the global challenges facing humanity
The planet is under pressure like never before. With a ballooning population consuming ever-more of its resources, the profligate way in which humanity operates is starting to backfire. Writer Jamie Joseph spoke to Helen Clark, United Nations Development Programme administrator and former Prime Minister of New Zealand, about the global path we are all on, and where opportunity lies. …
And one on leadership:
Posing the question – can Helen Clark lead the United Nations?
Britain’s Guardian news site recently headlined a lengthy article “will Helen Clark be the first woman to run the United Nations?”. It is not alone in posing the question. … In New York, Clark’s name is among those regularly floated as a possible contender. Opinion is divided, however, on whether she is in with a chance.
I hope Clark gets the UN role. It was a loss to NZ though, when we traded in a leader for a con man.
