St Paul's Cathedral 6th July.
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan will challenge world leaders to tackle global poverty when he speaks at St Paul's Cathedral before travelling to Gleneagles for the G8 summit.
On Wednesday 6 July at 6.30pm Mr Annan will deliver a keynote address at a debate entitled 'Global Poverty: A Challenge to the G8' where he will report on progress on the eight Millennium Development Goals to halve global poverty by 2015, and spur G8 members to commit themselves to meeting this challenge.
To coincide with Mr Annan's address and the G8 meeting the famous dome of the Cathedral will be wrapped in a white band - the symbol of the Make Poverty History campaign.
The event is open to the public, and admission is free and on a first come, first served basis. Doors open at 6pm. For more information call 020 7236 4128 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
