United Nations Launches Millennium Assembly Web-Site http://www.un.org/millennium

The United Nations is launching today a new web-site for the Millennium Assembly and Millennium Summit of the United Nations next year. The Millennium Summit, which will open on September 6, 2000, at United Nations headquarters in New York, is expected to be the largest-ever gathering of Heads of state and Heads of government and will consider challenges facing the United Nations in the new century and how best to meet them. Design for the web-site was supported by the Together Foundation, a private operating foundation committed to providing assistance to non-profit organizations, United Nations agencies and other intergovernmental organizations with their information, networking, database and telecommunications needs. The Together Foundation is in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. "The Together Foundation undertook this project because it is in keeping with our mission to promote the open flow of communication and exchange of ideas among nations," said Martha Vargas, Executive Director of the Together Foundation. The new web-site, which, initially, will be launched in English, can be accessed at http://www.un.org/millennium. In addition to providing updated information on the Millennium Assembly and Millennium Summit, the web-site provides information on preparations leading up to the Summit, including United Nations regional hearings. The web-site will also link to many other Millennium Assembly related events, among them the "Millennium Forum," to be held May 22 - 26, 2000, at United Nations Headquarters. ots Original Text Service: The Together Foundation Internet: http://www.newsaktuell.de Contact: Carol Simon of The Together Foundation (USA) 212-628-1939 Web site: http://www.un.org/millennium
