75 Years of the Un: 2020 and Beyond - A Common Future Together
Secretary-General António Guterres announced that next year’s commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations will feature a large and inclusive global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future we want.
In calling for participation, the Secretary-General said:
“No country, no community, is able to solve the complex problems of our world alone. We need to come together, not only to talk, but to listen. It is absolutely essential that you all join the conversation. We need your opinion, your strategies and your ideas for us to be able to deliver better for the people of the world that we must serve.”
The United Nations was founded in 1945 to support collective action to realize peace, development and human rights for all.
The UN75 Initiative UN75 seeks to drive conversation in all segments of society - from classrooms to boardrooms, parliaments to village halls - it will place special emphasis on youth and those whose voices are too often marginalized or not heard in global affairs.
The UN75 dialogues together with a “One-minute Survey” that anyone can take, opinion polling in 50 countries and artificial intelligence sentiment analysis of traditional and social media in 70 countries, will generate compelling data to inform national and international policies and debate.
The results of the survey are to be presented at the official celebration of the 75th anniversary of the UN in September 2020. And in January 2021, a report will be issued with recommendations on how the initiatives proposed by the public around the world can be turned into reality.
Those who want to be a part of the conversation - physically or online – can see how to join through the website: www.un.org/UN75.
Join the discussion. Change the world.
