UN75 Global Governance Forum
The UN75 Global Governance Forum seeks to promote a more inclusive and effective United Nations through dialogue and recommendations that better harness the ideas, capabilities, and networks of both state and non-state actors for achieving the UN’s commitment to peace, sustainable development, human rights, and a stable climate.
On September 16th and 17th, 2020, we will gather virtually to honor the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. A cornerstone of international order since 1945, the United Nations must continue to adapt and innovate to respond to new threats, challenges, and opportunities in our current age of complexity. On September 18 we will hold the UN75 community-driven sessions which will contribute to the UN75 Global Governance Forum’s overall goal to promote a more inclusive and effective United Nations through dialogue and recommendations.
We will convene stakeholders from civil society (including youth), scholars, policy entrepreneurs, UN system bodies and Member States, the private sector, and philanthropic institutions to honor the principles of multilateral cooperation upon which the UN was founded.
In this spirit, participants will seek collectively to raise the ambition of the UN75 Declaration—to be finalized in June 2020 by Member States—by initiating new multi-stakeholder pilot projects toward the realization of “the future we want, the UN we need.” In an era of accelerated connectivity and advanced technology, we aspire 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.
