That this House welcomes the launch of UN House Scotland in Edinburgh, a new centre which brings together organisations working to support and promote the aims of the United Nations in Scotland; recognises the significant contribution of its member organisations, which include UNA Scotland, CIFAL Scotland and UNESCO Scotland, in addressing issues as diverse as education, health, child welfare, women's rights, nuclear non-proliferation, water scarcity and climate change; notes that UN House Scotland is the first such project of its kind in the UK; and shares the hopes of UN House Scotland that the new centre will improve public awareness and understanding of the important work of the UN to tackle inequality, support human rights, encourage sustainable social and economic progress and promote peace between nations.
