In 2015, the world agreed on and launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a universal call-to-action to create lasting change.
These ambitious goals unite governments, businesses, civil-society and people around one vision to achieve a better world. We believe that in order to achieve these goals, we must reframe them as THE PEOPLE’S GOALS, where everyone is part of the solution.
UNGA is the democratic heart of the United Nations where governments deliberate, design policies and make decisions on important issues that impact the world. Decision makers meet every September (since 1945) at the UN headquarters in New York City and create policies that impact us all.Learn More About SDGs
UNGA and most related-events are invite-only and selective. Security, size limitations and passport color determines who is invited, which leaves most of the world’s seven billion without a voice to shape important conversations.Learn more
With you in mind, we have leveraged innovation to design a fully online conference experience that connects people around the world to influencers, decision makers and conversations happening around UNGA. We are putting people at the center of decision making.Learn more
The Power of Young People
On 18 September 2019, we are proud to co-host the 2019 BridgingTheGap to Youth Forum organized by BridgingTheGap Forums around the 74th United Nations General Assembly.
The global forum aims to empower, engage and connect young people and influencers from around the world to innovate solutions to some of the world’s most challenging issues. By leveraging new technology and digital media, our BridgingTheGap to Youth Forum will be live-streamed as the Global People’s Summit 2019—creating a place for emerging leaders to directly engage with key decision-makers, world leaders and influencers—and putting the ideas of young people at the center of critical discussions that shape the future.
Our theme for this year is YOUTH, visit the 2019 Summit page to learn more and join us from anywhere in the world!
