The New York Office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) hosted a luncheon on the occasion of the visit of Ms. Rita Schwarzelühr-Sutter, Parliamentary State Secretary in the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety to New York. Ms. Schwarzelühr-Sutter has come to New York to participate in the Ministerial Segment of the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), the body with ultimate responsibility for coordinating a plan of action for sustainable development. With participants from the global, national and city-levels, the conversation was able to address rising concerns across the world that economic inequality and environmental degredation are mutually reinforcing and must be tacked together if we are to achieve sustainability.
