The MDG Summit day 1

Today's the first day of the UN Summit and I've spent most of it at the Save the Children interactive art installation at Grand Central Station.
We've been stopping New Yorkers and asking them to add their thumb prints to this amazing piece of artwork created by the British artist Ian Wright.
I've spoken to the actress Claire Danes about her involvement with Save the Children and interviewed Andrew Mitchell the UK Secretary of State for International Development. The good news is that he has pledged to support Save the Children in training 400,000 community healthcare workers before 2015 and that the UK government will do all they can to ensure the Millennium Development Goals are reached. The gols are way off track and there is a lot to achieve in the next five years, so lets hope that he meant what he said.
