UN75 Global Governance Forum: Community-driven sessions
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.
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.
- Initiate a new generation of scale-able, multi-stakeholder partnership initiatives that better harness, for 2020 and beyond, the ideas, capabilities and networks of state & non-state actors for achieving the UN’s commitment to peace, sustainable development, human rights, and a stable climate
- Build consensus around a strategy for a select number of “global governance institutional, policy, and normative innovations.
