Details

Date & Time:
September 17
9:00 am - 1:30 pm
EDT
Add to Calendar September 17 9:00 am September 17 1:30 pm America/New_York UN75 Global Governance Forum

As we approach the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations under the banner “the future we want, the UN we need”, we reflect on the complex challenges facing our world, including cross-border health pandemics, economic shocks, inequality, climate instability, and threats to peace and security, and bring forward a call to action. Talking about what the UN system can do for us and the changes required is important. An even more critical challenge is to engage stakeholders from within and outside the world body to co-create partnerships and pathways to the future we fervently desire and a United Nations that inspires and serves all humanity.

By promoting a more inclusive and effective UN through multi-stakeholder discussions and recommendations, the Forum aspires to forge a roadmap to bring a fresh, modern perspective to the UN Charter’s founding principles to update our vision and promote a truly “people-centered” architecture for global collective action.

Check out the full draft list of confirmed speakers including: Eighth Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon, Former Prime Minister of Norway Gro Harlem Brundtland, Former U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Madeleine K. Albright, Former Nigerian Foreign Minister Professor Ibrahim A. Gambari, African Union Envoy on Youth Aya Chebbi, First woman President of Ireland Mary Robinson, Nobel Peace Laureate Juan Manuel Santos, Aljazeera Anchor Maryam Nemazee, Pakistani Human Rights Defender Hina Jilani, Chair of the World Refugee Council Lloyd Axworthy, and CIVICUS Secretary-General Lysa John.

Join the UN75 Global Governance Forum for this virtual meeting on September 16th-18th to discuss building a more effective and inclusive UN.
