With live and on-demand webcast on UN WebTV
On 26th of June 1945 – exactly 75 years ago – representatives of national governments signed the UN Charter. The world has changed significantly since then. The nature of global challenges has changed and people all over the world more than ever before feel united in a community of destiny challenged i.a. by the climate change crisis and the health crisis caused by COVID19.
The organizers of the “#AllOfSociety #DigitalCooperation for #GlobalGoals” webinar want to use the momentum of the #UN75 celebration and the recent presentation of the “Roadmap for Digital Cooperation” and the “UN Data Strategy for Action by Everyone, Everywhere” by the UN Secretary General to envision new – digitally empowered futures for the United Nations system in which all of society and especially youth and local communities will be engaged in a meaningful and rewarding manner.
For this future oriented discussion, we have organized this webinar to create a virtual forum to collaboratively reflect on the current operating system of global community and to explore new avenues for the enhanced mobilization of action and resources of non-state actors for better delivery of public good on local and global level, guided by the Sustainable Development Goals/Agenda2030.
