Fulfilling the Promise of the UN75 Declaration

Join us, the Coalition for the UN We Need (formerly UN2020), and Together First to discuss ways to build momentum of the UN’s 75th anniversary to strengthen global governance innovation.

The event will feature several of the 49 signatories of the letter, A Time for Renewal: Calling for a Strengthened Multilateral System*. Signatories include former heads of government, foreign ministers, and UN officials, who urged world leaders to take stock of present challenges to the UN system by calling for a dedicated intergovernmental process to strengthen and reform the organization.

To take stock of the UN75 Declaration and advance our common agenda, the Stimson Center, Coalition for the UN We Need and Together First will launch a series of events to discuss the future of global cooperation. The first event of the series will invite prominent leaders to consider how an inclusive and networked multilateralism can help to fulfill the commitments made in the UN75 Declaration, as the UN embarks on the Decade of Action to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.
