Last June the General Assembly adopted a modalities resolution (A/RES/73/299) that decided that the UN shall prepare a Leaders Summit on 21 September 2020 to commemorate its 75th anniversary under the theme “The future we want, the United Nations we need: reaffirming our collective commitment to multilateralism.”

Now is the time for key global, regional and national civil society networks to organize their participation in UN75 commemorative events, dialogues and activities during 2020, including their participation in the planning of key commemorative events throughout next year, that includes the proposed UN75 NGO Forum in New York next spring to influence the outcomes of the UN75 Leaders Summit in September 2020. 

The latest strategy session of the UN2020 initiative was held November 12, 2019 in New York, and was co-sponsored by the World Federalist Movement-Institute for Global Policy, CIVICUS, The Stimson Center, The Workable World Trust, FES New York, United Nations Association-UK, Soroptimist International, and the NGO Committee on Sustainable Development-NY.
