Participate in the world's largest global conversation.
To mark its 75th anniversary in 2020, the United Nations is igniting a people’s debate: UN75. Launched by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, it promises to be the largest and furthest-reaching global conversation ever on building the future we want.
In a world of dramatic changes and complex challenges, from the climate crisis to population shifts to the unknown course of technology, we need collective action more than ever before. Through UN75, the United Nations will encourage people to put their heads together to define how enhanced international cooperation can help realize a better world by 2045, the UN’s 100th birthday.
While 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. The aim is to reach people from all communities and walks of life.
The views and ideas that are generated will be presented to world leaders and senior UN officials at a high-profile event during the 75th Session of the General Assembly in September 2020, and disseminated online and through partners continuously.
UN House Scotland proudly supports the initiatives of UN75. For more information about this campaign, click here.
Furthermore, we invite you to endorse the UN75 People’s Declaration and Call for Global Action, “Humanity at a Crossroads: Global Solutions for Global Challenges,” that was formally received by H.E. Mr. Tijjani Muhammad-Bande, 74th President of the General Assembly, at the UN75 People’s Forum (May 14-15).
In endorsing the Declaration, we would also invite (a) your continued involvement in the UN2020 Campaign, and (b) your assistance in this September’s UN75 communications and campaigning. The endorsement form at the UN2020 website also provides for these additional possibilities.
