UN Summit weblogs

The 2005 UN Summit in New York starts today, and openDemocracy is co-editing a daily newsletter together with the Stakeholder Forum. It's called Outreach. The first issue will be circulated to UN delegates and press tomorrow.

I was inside the UN building today for the first time. Even the security guards (and there are many) were multinational. This afternoon was quiet, but so far the talk of the town is UN reform, the stale document that has been drafted for the Summit, and what George Bush will say later today. The streets surrounding the UN are full of secret security types in dark suits and NYC police. And if you walk far enough from the UN you might meet the occasional protester too. But overall, I'd say New York is underwhelmed.

Here are a couple of blogs it's worth keeping an eye on throughout the Summit.
