75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNITED NATIONS

To mark its 75th anniversary, the United Nations launched the UN75 initiative, a wide-ranging and inclusive debate spanning the entire globe on the role of international cooperation in building a better future for humanity. To overcome problems such as the climate crisis, inequality and new patterns of violence, and to address the major demographic and technological change of our era, we need cooperation that cuts across borders, sectors and generations. This is also required to achieve the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
